Hospital for Special Care (HSC) is the fourth largest, free-standing long-term acute care hospital in the U.S. and one of only two in the nation serving both adults and children. Located in New Britain and Hartford, we operate on a not-for-profit basis. We are recognized for advanced care and rehabilitation in pulmonary care, acquired brain injury, medically-complex pediatrics, neuromuscular disorders, spinal cord injury, comprehensive heart failure and comprehensive inpatient and outpatient treatment for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder.
We believe in keeping the same shared value of making our patients the center of what we do. You and/or your loved ones will receive individualized care where everyone works together in a multidisciplinary approach. Throughout every stage of recovery, both inpatient and outpatient, it is our goal to rebuild your physical, spiritual and emotional self.

We will support the practice of rehabilitation and continuing medical care through research and education. We will create a work environment and climate where employees are supported to provide excellent care, and find opportunities for personal and professional growth. We will be, in all of the above, responsive and accountable to our communities, for whose benefit we exist.

Community Health Needs Assessment
A Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is conducted periodically to evaluate the health needs of individuals living in the hospital service area of the state of Connecticut. The CHNA helps guide HSC in developing and implementing strategies to improve the health status of our community.
