Help Us Help Others

Connecticut Hospice is stepping in to take non-COVID-19 patients displaced from overcrowded New Haven area hospitals.

Most of these patients will probably be in the last few days or weeks of life, but we will step up to help wherever we can. Many of you perhaps do not realize that we hold an acute-care specialty hospital license, as well as hospice and home care licenses. You also may not know that Connecticut has the fewest hospital beds per person among the New England states, and among the lowest in the country. That ensures that our 52 beds will be important in the fight against COVID-19.

Help us keep our staff safe and healthy. Your donation will help purchase; masks, gloves, thermometers and scrubs
