Community Benefits

Connecticut Children’s board certified physicians and highly trained specialists provide advanced clinical and surgical care to children of all ages. However, the impact we make on health care in Connecticut reaches far beyond our walls and into communities across the state.

Connecticut Children’s pioneered an innovative Community Child Health model which leads research, development and delivery of robust outreach programs that address critical issues affecting the health, development and well-being of Connecticut’s children. This model, which serves as an example for other children’s hospitals nationwide, helps keep children safer and healthier. It also empowers community pediatricians to provide better primary care, so that together we can succeed in making children in Connecticut the healthiest in the nation.

Patients and families from every corner of Connecticut, and now Massachusetts, have benefited from Connecticut Children’s ongoing clinical and community-focused growth. New construction and extended patient services have expanded our capabilities, throughout Connecticut and southern New England.

As the primary teaching hospital for the University of Connecticut School of Medicine department of pediatrics, students of medicine and related fields benefit from access to Connecticut Children’s specialized pediatric environment, including our advanced facilities and highly skilled staff. We help educate the health care professionals who will care for Connecticut’s children for years to come and advise policy-makers about community needs that affect the present and future.

Connecticut Children’s conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment every three years and reports progress in addressing needs identified in those assessments through annual Community Benefit Reports. Such reporting is required of all not-for-profit hospitals under Internal Revenue Service Code Section 501®. In addition to these formal reports, Connecticut Children’s gathers information from research, participation on advisory councils, boards of directors and professional networks, continuous monitoring of clinical trends, and ongoing dialogue with health and community leaders to guide decision making about current and prospective community benefit activities.
