Every day, Hartford HealthCare touches 23,000 lives through every aspect of our work – seeing patients, training, research, charitable care and screenings. On certain days, such as our system-wide Medical Mission, those numbers tick up dramatically as colleagues and providers render free care to thousands of the neediest among us. Both aspects of our work demonstrate Hartford HealthCare’s commitment to strengthening the health of all. In 2022, that investment translated into more than $305 million in community benefit.



Here are a few examples of partnerships in our community


On November 4, 2023, Hartford HealthCare provided critical medical services for free to our underserved communities. Now in its ninth year, the Medical Mission connects our communities to resources, follow-up care and more.

We are fully committed to improving care and access for our community.


We are moving from an old and broken “normal” model of care that is inefficient, hard to navigate and inequitable. Redefining healthcare to be “better than normal” has required us to challenge the status quo and repeatedly disrupt our own operations.

We face this task with clear-eyed motivation to enhance four dimensions of care:

Our bold commitment to these principles enables us to build a system of care that is more accessible, has lower-cost options, is a champion for equity, and both attracts and delivers excellence.  Together, we are making healthcare better, more accessible and affordable for those we serve. We are bringing world-class healthcare to the citizens of Connecticut and beyond. This is what we all deserve.
