At Connecticut Hospice, our staff and volunteers knows what excellence in programs is all about. Together we have built a national reputation for exceptional care, both for our patients and their families. Our state of the art, Joint Commission accredited, teaching palliative hospital hospice is the first of its kind in America.

At Connecticut Hospice we are committed to providing competitive salaries and outstanding benefits. In addition, we have dedicated significant resources to providing mentoring and other learning opportunities to help professionals fulfill their career goals and objectives.
