Hartford HealthCare Family Center Opens In Bloomfield

December 02, 2016

Healthcare served family style, and close to home, represents an ongoing shift in the way people now expect health services and specialties.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday marked the Hartford HealthCare Family Health Center’s arrival in Bloomfield, promising the surrounding communities primary care providers, services from the Hartford Hospital Rehabilitation Network and, across the street, the nursing, rehabilitation and home-care services of Hartford HealthCare at Home.

“This is where families understand that Hartford HealthCare can provide all of their healthcare needs, for their whole lives,” said Jeffrey Flaks, Hartford HealthCare’s president and chief and chief operating officer, at the ceremony at the new facility at 2 Northwestern Drive. “We aspire to be ‘most trusted.’ This is where the trust starts.”

The Bloomfield family health center, the second opened by Hartford HealthCare in 2016 (following Vernon), will have three Hartford HealthCare Medical Group primary-care providers who will be accepting new patients: Dr.  Stanley Glassman, Dr. Arzu Demirci and Lynne Whitney, a doctor of nursing practice and a nurse practitioner. The medical group, affiliated with five hospitals, includes physicians in more than 30 specialties at locations across central and eastern Connecticut.

“Primary care might be thought of as the ‘front door’ of Hartford HealthCare,” said Flaks. “But the Hartford Hospital Rehabilitation Network and HHC at Home each represent doors that people need at different times of their lives. When we open a center like this, we open doors to the communities we serve.”
