Neighborhood Well being | Hartford HealthCare
At Hartford HealthCare we are improving health equity with our latest program: Hartford HealthCare neighborhood health.
More access to health professionals in your community
Our neighborhood health initiative is designed to provide more health prevention services and support to the people and communities we serve. It is part of Hartford HealthCare’s greater commitment to helping all people lead healthier lives by creating more contact and health care opportunities in Connecticut.
This is how it works
HHC mobile “CareVans” visit and operate day clinics at selected locations several times a month. They offer a variety of health services, including screening, psychological counseling, medical referrals, education, and support. Pfzier and Moderna vaccines are also offered at selected locations and dates.
Neighborhood Health was developed in collaboration with trusted community partners across the state. These groups and individuals helped determine the health needs and priorities of their residents and communities. These innovative health clinics will be adaptable, flexible and open to feedback to ensure access to the services and programs needed.

HHC currently offers the Hartford, Torrington, Winsted and Thomaston clinics and plans to expand the services to nationwide locations over time.
