WEST HARTFORD – Hebrew Health Care in West Hartford and Hartford HealthCare have agreed to form a strategic partnership with the goal of improving access to resources, services and programs throughout both systems. The partnership will be achieved through management consulting and clinical affiliation agreements with Hartford HealthCare. Hebrew Health Care will continue to be governed by an independent Board of Trustees and its own management team. A definitive agreement is in development.
Bonnie Gauthier, president and chief executive officer of Hebrew Health Care, said that partnership with a strong health care partner was a central element of the organization’s strategic plan. “Hebrew Health Care’s focus has been on serving older adults for all of its 113-year history. We are looking forward to forging a bright future for our organization and all those we serve through this affiliation,” she said.
“Hartford HealthCare’s organizational management expertise, together with Hebrew Health Care’s recognized geriatric experience and skill, will allow us to deepen our shared commitment to the seniors we serve across the region,” said Elliot Joseph, president and chief executive officer of Hartford HealthCare. “Together, our organizations bring to the partnership a track record of award-winning senior care and management expertise.”
