When Speed and Skill Mean Everything

The Emergency Department (ED) at Hartford Hospital (HH) treats over 100,000 adult patients per year with conditions ranging from major trauma, heart attacks and stroke to more minor illness.

Patients come to us by all means of transportation ranging from their own automobiles to ambulances, including Hartford Hospital’s LIFE STAR helicopter. We admit over 20,000 patients to the hospital. We are accredited as a Level I Trauma Center, a Stroke Center and a Chest Pain Center. We are the main clinical site of the University of Connecticut School of Medicine’s Emergency Medicine Residency and are active in the training of PA/NP's and nurses.

After triage by a registered nurse patients are cared for by emergency nurses, patient care assistants, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and emergency physicians.
