Personal Items Drop-Off Information

Thank you for trusting Hartford HealthCare. It’s our privilege to care for you.

Our visitor restrictions are designed to keep you safe during the COVID-19 emergency.

We also understand that support from friends and family can promote healing and that items from home can help you feel more comfortable and connected.

  • 8–9:30 am

  • 12–1:30 pm

Items must be delivered to the hospital in a sealed plastic bag (you can use tape or a twist tie if items are too big for a zipper-lock bag) and marked with the patient’s name and date of birth.
