Established on a legacy that spans more than 100 years, Connecticut Children’s continued growth and clinical programs that are named among the “Best Children’s Hospitals” by U.S. News & World Report is evidence of our world-class medical care, leading academic research and superior education and training.

Our Culture

Connecticut Children’s is a dynamic environment where employees are challenged and rewarded every day. We believe that top quality medical treatment for children is valuable only when accompanied by the compassion for patients, families, peers, and partners in care that our employees exemplify. Connecticut Children’s pursues the highest standards and best outcomes in everything we do, always working with a team mentality to achieve the greatest success.

Beyond being one of the Northeast’s leading pediatric medical centers with state-of-the-art facilities such as our Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center and two regional referral neonatal intensive care units (Level 3 and Level 4), and a highly skilled team of board certified physicians that spans a broad spectrum of medical specialties, Connecticut Children’s is much more. We are the primary teaching hospital and research facility for the University of Connecticut School of Medicine department of pediatrics. We are a proponent of preventive care and community child health and wellness, serving to make not only our visitors healthy, but all children in Connecticut. We are a not-for-profit organization that puts all of its resources toward supporting our mission to improve the physical and emotional health of all children.

Rewards & Recognition

Connecticut Children’s Medical Center recognizes all employees with traditional compensation as well as other benefits that contribute to a positive work environment and professional experience. We foster physical, mental, and spiritual well-being through programs that support healthy lifestyles, and organize several events throughout the year to reward our employees including offsite activities, bus trips and peer recognition ceremonies.
