Continuing a Tradition of Excellence

Hartford Hospital has a long history and tradition of excellence.

We pride ourselves on providing the best possible care in the most compassionate way. Our highly skilled staff has access to state-of-the-art technology and research, including a growing number of clinical trials, making us the regional destination for innovative and complex care. In Fiscal Year 2016, we received more than 6,130 patient transfers from hospitals that could not provide the high level of care we deliver.

As an academic medical center, Hartford Hospital is the primary teaching hospital for the University of Connecticut medical school. Our nationally recognized Center for Education, Simulation and Innovation trained more than 11,000 professionals last year, including members of law enforcement and the U.S. Navy. We also have the only Level One trauma center in our region and are the home of LIFE STAR, an award-winning, air-ambulance service.

For the outstanding care we deliver and our numerous “firsts” in medical treatment, we have achieved local and national recognition. U.S. News & World Report recently ranked us Number One in the Hartford metro area and high-performing in diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, nephrology, orthopedics, and pulmonology. Becker’s Hospital Review named us among the top 100 hospitals nationwide for cancer care.

With the complex care we provide, Hartford Hospital plays a major role in the Hartford HealthCare system, which includes hospitals, physician offices, rehabilitation and behavioral health services, and skilled-nursing care. As a system of care, we are changing the way healthcare is delivered. We truly are an integrated system, coordinating care for patients so they can move seamlessly from one level of treatment to another. As a hospital and system, we are continuing to increase access to care by bringing care into the communities we serve.

Our success rests on the commitment and dedication of our staff and our community supporters. Through more than 160 years, we have enjoyed tremendous support, which I am confident will continue well into the future as we continue to advance the care we provide.
