In the spring of 2012 we announced the formation of a medical foundation designed to provide a structure for physicians and advanced practitioners employed by Hartford HealthCare.
We are delighted to announce that this new multi-specialty group practice began operating on Jan. 1, 2013 as Hartford HealthCare Medical Group.
This group brings together physicians in more than 60 offices, across four hospitals and is made up of clinicians who have practiced with Hartford Specialists, Hartford Medical Group, MidState Medical Group, Doctors of Central Connecticut and Windham Family Medical Associates.
Landor’s experts told us that this name clearly states who and what we are with no further explanation needed. It links us to the already recognized Hartford HealthCare brand and reflects the fact that we are a group of physicians and other practitioners working together to deliver the highest-quality, safest and most coordinated care to our patients.
Please join us in celebrating the naming of this important addition to the Hartford HealthCare family. We are looking forward to helping Hartford HealthCare to realize its vision “to be nationally respected for excellence in patient care and most trusted for personalized, coordinated care.’’
Kent Stahl, M.D.
President & V.P., Primary Care Division, Hartford HealthCare Medical Group
