Faces of Hartford HealthCare

The Faces of Hartford Healthcare project is focused on sharing the stories of the women and men who provide and support bedside patient care in the chain's hospitals and facilities. The goal is to help the community better understand an escalating crisis that these nurses and allied health professionals are struggling to resolve. It's also an important opportunity for these hard-working caregivers to receive the recognition they deserve. 

A Win For Us Is A Win For Windham

Since Hartford HealthCare (HHC) has taken over Windham Community Memorial Hospital (WCMH), there has been a dramatic shift from patient care to corporate profits. Since HHC's "partnership" and acquisition of WCMH, the community has lost vital services such as the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the Labor and Delivery Unit. HHC has been slapped with a class-action lawsuit for overcharging patients in its tier system. Unfortunately, employees of HHC at Windham Hospital are not safe either. HHC has further failed to recognize the bedside experience of nurses and health professionals.

"Is this How HHC Treats Patients?"

Hartford HealthCare (HHC) executives pride themselves for claiming to demonstate core values like integrity, caring, excellence and safety. In reality, many of their "business" practices are highly questionable. This is especially true when it comes to the treatment of their own employees.
 
Right now, the nurses and health professionals employed by HHC at Windham Community Memorial Hospital (WCMH) are in effect "underinsured." Their limited coverage fails to meet their family's healthcare needs, leaving them with significant out-of-pocket expenses. 

More Than Luck to Find Affordable, Quality Healthcare

Are you feeling lucky when it comes to your health? Here in Connecticut, it can take more than luck to find local affordable, quality care. Chains like Hartford HealthCare (HHC) have been gambling with your well-being and that needs to change.

HHC has for years been cornering the market in communities all across our state by gobbling up smaller practices and limiting patients to physicians under their umbrella of control.
