Community Benefit

At Western Connecticut Health Network, we are not only your caregivers, we are your neighbors, friends and family. As part of our commitment to the health of those we serve, we spend time in the community promoting healthy living and disease prevention through screenings, wellness classes and support programs hosted throughout the region. Working together, we are creating a healthier community by empowering residents to take charge of their health.
