Community Involvement

Each year, Hartford Hospital contributes to the community in the form of support for other non-profit organizations. The hospital makes donations, forms partnerships, offers financial support or supplies in-kind services to a large number of agencies. In addition, Hartford Hospital staff serve the community by working with local agencies and taking part in the events sponsored by these organizations. The following is a list of those agencies that have benefited from the hospital and, in turn, brought benefit to the hospital.
