Teaching, continuing education, and pioneering research are all vital to understanding the complexities of healthcare. Our involvement in these areas characterizes our commitment to a higher level of care. The root services of clinical outcomes and health services research lie in observations made in the health care delivery system; findings from these studies are then cycled back into clinical practice and improve patient care. Together, we are working to revolutionize the future of medicine through improved prevention, testing, diagnosis, and treatment.
Many members of the medical staff at Danbury Hospital, New Milford Hospital, and Norwalk Hospital are involved in innovative research projects. As a regional medical center, research is a primary focus for all of our clinical faculty and trainees. The following are some of the research areas that we are currently dedicated to:
- The Western Connecticut Health Network Lyme Disease Registry
- Infectious Disease
- Internal Medicine
- Palliative Medicine
- Primary Care
- Sleep Disorders
