Connecticut Children’s is a nationally recognized, 187-bed not-for-profit children’s hospital in Hartford, Connecticut. Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation, we foster a patient- and family-centered environment with a focus on research, education and advocacy.
Connecticut Children’s serves as the primary pediatric teaching hospital for the UConn School of Medicine, has a teaching partnership with the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University and is a research partner of The Jackson Laboratory. Connecticut Children’s welcomes, cares for and
protects all children who walk through our doors. We are an institution of acceptance and compassion regardless of nationality or immigration status.
Connecticut Children’s board-certified physicians and highly-trained specialists provide advanced clinical and surgical care to children of all ages. However, the impact we make on health care in Connecticut reaches far beyond our walls and into communities across the state.
Connecticut Children’s pioneered an innovative Community Child Health model which leads research, development and delivery of robust outreach programs that address critical health issues affecting Connecticut’s children. This model, which serves as an example for other children’s hospitals nationwide, helps keep children safer and empowers community pediatricians to provide better primary care, so that together we can succeed in making children in Connecticut the healthiest in the nation.
Patients of families from every corner of Connecticut, and now Massachusetts, have benefitted from Connecticut Children’s ongoing growth. New construction and extended patient services have expanded our capabilities, throughout Connecticut and southern New England.
