2014 Annual Report

This is a special year, as we mark our 160th anniversary.

The year 2014 celebrates 160 years of Hartford Hospital’s innovation, advances in medicine and community service. Here, advances in medicine take place each and every day.

Hartford Hospital was born in the wake of an industrial disaster – the 1854 explosion at a Hartford railroad car factory that killed 19 and injured 23 workers. There was no central place to care for the injured. In response, civic leaders came together to found Hartford Hospital. The community created our hospital, and we have cared for that community ever since.

Given our roots, it is not surprising that emergency pre-paredness and response are our most important functions. Hartford Hospital is the region’s only Level I trauma center, offering the most advanced level of care for the injured. Hartford Hospital is the home of LIFE STAR, our critical-care air-medical transport service, which will celebrate its 30th anniversary in June.

In a tough time for health care, we look to the future with strength and confidence, building on the past to create an even better future. We have just broken ground on our world-class Bone & Joint Institute. We will begin a major expansion of our Center for Education, Simulation and Innovation, which has become a global hub for advanced medical training and health-technology partnerships. (more)
