At Hospital for Special Care we have a dedicated staff and innovative programs for those special needs - and more. Our Health and Fitness programs pay particular attention to the needs and desires of people with disabilities to participate in recreational and competitive sports. Our Aquatic Rehabilitation Center is fully accessible and features rehabilitative and fitness programs for people of all physical abilities.
Aquatics & Fitness Center
The Aquatic Rehabilitation and Fitness Center (opened in 1999), is located on the campus of Hospital for Special Care in New Britain. This dynamic 27,000 square foot facility provides a beautiful, easily accessible center for people rehabilitating after illness or injury as well as for those who want to build their strength and fitness level and improve their overall health.
Early Learning Center
The purpose of The Early Learning Center at Hospital for Special Care program is to offer high quality care and experiences to the children of CSC employees and community members.
Staffed entirely by volunteers, the Special Care Equipment Exchange accepts donations of used durable medical equipment. This expensive equipment, not always covered by insurance, is made available, free-of-charge, to community members in need of these items.
HSC Adaptive Sports Program
Through our sports and fitness programs we give both children and adults the opportunity to achieve their goals and lead independent lives.
Manes & Motions
Our program was developed to contribute to the well being of individuals with disabilities through the proven benefits of therapeutic horseback riding and/or equine related activities.
Special Care Dental Services
Special Care Dental Services opened in August 1997 in response to a critical need for oral healthcare for Medicaid-eligible and uninsured children in our community. More than 4,000 children and their families have been served, and more than 70 percent of our patients have returned for follow-up care.
Each year volunteers contribute more than 22,000 hours to support the staff, patients and visitors. Volunteers can be placed with direct patient contact or provide clerical support in various departments.
