Springer Courtyard Ribbon Cutting

Springer Courtyard Ribbon Cutting

We are live from Hartford Hospital to honor the visionary leadership of Hartford Hospital’s 18th president, John Springer. Today a new courtyard is being unveiled at the Education and Resource Center (ERC) on Hudson Street. Through a gift from the Nursing Alumnae Association of the Hartford Hospital School of Nursing Association, the courtyard’s fountain has been replaced, it honors the legacy of nursing education that Hartford Hospital provided for nearly 100 years, from 1877 to 1976.
