Saint Francis Care, an integrated healthcare delivery system in central Connecticut, is the largest Catholic healthcare provider in New England. Our services cover the continuum of patient needs, including community-based preventive and primary care, specialty care, high acuity tertiary care and post-acute care. Many of these services are provided through partnerships, affiliations and relationships developed with other exceptional providers. Overall, Saint Francis Care provides access to almost 900 affiliated physicians, three hospital campuses, 12 satellite medical offices, and a variety of community clinics.
BestCare for a Lifetime is the vision Saint Francis Care embraces as we partner with our patients, their families and our community to provide health and healing through a commitment to clinical excellence, quality and safety, compassionate care, and reverence for the spirituality of each person. To us, this means a focus on appropriate care before, during and after a hospital stay.
With 617 licensed beds and 65 bassinets, the flagship of Saint Francis Care is Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford. The hospital expanded in 2011 with the addition of the 10-story John T. O'Connell Tower, featuring a new, state-of-the-art surgical pavilion, dedicated space for the Connecticut Joint Replacement Institute and an expanded emergency department with 70 treatment areas and a rooftop helipad for the LIFESTAR helicopter. In addition to the joint replacement institute, Saint Francis offers centers of excellence in cancer care, heart and vascular disease, women and infants' services and rehabilitation medicine.
Our integrated healthcare delivery system also includes the Mount Sinai Rehabilitation Hospital, Connecticut's only free-standing acute care rehabilitation hospital; and Johnson Memorial Medical Center (JMMC) in Stafford Springs, which signed an affiliation agreement with Saint Francis in 2012. JMMC is the non-profit parent company of Johnson Memorial Hospital; Evergreen Health Care Center; and Home & Community Health Services, a home health care and hospice agency. Combined, JMMC provides a continuum of healthcare services to those living and working in north central Connecticut and western Massachusetts. – less
