About Us

Bieniekmug.jpgConsistent with Hartford HealthCare’s mission to improve the health of our communities, Tallwood Men's Health provides healthcare tailored to the unique needs of men.

This focus is crucial given that current statistics from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) indicate men are nearly 1.4 times as likely to die from almost every chronic medical condition as women. In addition, a 2010 NIH study revealed that men are more overweight than women and are more likely to engage in such health risk behaviors as regular and heavy alcohol drinking, heavy smoking, and drug use.

The result is that men in the United States live an average of five years less than women.

Understanding there is room for improvement – and knowing that men do not participate in preventative healthcare as often as women - we developed Tallwood Men’s Health to address care differences and make men feel more comfortable coming in to see a provider.

Our comprehensive service line includes experts in:

nurse navigator will ensure up-to-date preventative health screenings and engage other members of the team to address linked medical conditions in a timely and efficient manner.

The Men’s Health center is conveniently located in Farmington, with services also available at Hartford HealthCare service locations near you.

We believe that New England men deserve the highest level of care. We want to see men live healthier lives and longer lives. That’s our mission at Tallwood Men’s Health.
