Charlotte Hungerford Hospital is a 109-plus bed, acute care facility serving the regional health care needs of thirty towns in northwest Connecticut. The Hospital was founded in 1916 as gift by industrialist Uri T. Hungerford in memory of his mother Charlotte, who had a “boundless energy and dedication for helping others.”
He envisioned a community hospital to be a beacon of hope and a place of comfort for the ill and injured of our region, and through his generosity and support, made it a reality.
Today, CHH offers a comprehensive range of inpatient and outpatient services including general medicine and surgery, maternity and pediatrics, radiology, obstetrics, cardiology, urology, Orthopaedics, and behavioral health.
The Hospital is a not-for-profit organization, member of the American Hospital Association and the Connecticut Hospital Association, and accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and by the American College of American Pathologists.
