"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.

Heartless Hartford HealthCare

Love is in the air... or is it? Hartford HealthCare (HHC) claims to love the communities it serves, but it has consistently cut services at many of the facilities it owns and operates. 

Over a year ago, HHC executives closed the maternity ward at Windham Community Memorial Hospital (WCMH), sending expectant mothers far away to deliver their babies. Before that it was the Intesive Care Unit (ICU) on the chopping block.

New Year's Resolutions

The dawn of a new year means new beginnings, celebrating the start of new lives. But this year some communities couldn't welcome their Baby New Year.

No Room At The Inn

Local community hospitals are slowly being taken over by larger healthcare chains, like Hartford HealthCare (HHC). In turn, that's started a nationwide trend of 'healthcare deserts' where critical services are lacking in rural areas and other underserved regions.

In early 2020, HHC executives closed the maternity ward at Windham Community Memorial Hospital (WCMH), sending expectant mothers far away to deliver their babies. The dangerous journey has proven to be difficult for too many families in the Quiet Corner. 

Bring Back the Maternity Ward

Hartford HealthCare has gotten rid of the maternity ward at Windham Hospital and now residents must go to Norwich, Manchester or Hartford. This puts the women and their babies at risk.

Help us tell Hartford HealthCare not to value money over human life.
