About the Hartford HealthCare’s Neighborhood Health Program

Hartford HealthCare’s Neighborhood Health initiative is designed to bring more health prevention services and support directly to the people and communities we serve. It’s part of Hartford HealthCare’s larger commitment to helping all people live their healthiest lives by providing more outreach and healthcare opportunities throughout Connecticut.

Services are tailored to the needs of each community. A basic menu includes primary care wellness exams; behavioral health screening and counseling; preventative screenings; and staff connecting patients to community services, primary care providers, specialty care providers, and follow-up care. Additional services are offered on a rotating basis depending on the need, which include but are not limited to nutritional counseling; diabetic counseling; COVID-19 testing and vaccination; women’s health services such as prenatal/post-partum education and lactation support; men’s health; and Hartford Hospital’s Mobile Mammography coach. Hartford HealthCare colleagues set up Neighborhood Health clinics within facilities provided by community organizations, and utilize patient vans to provide services in locations where there is no indoor space.

Funds raised from the 2022 Spring Into Action will go toward the purchase a Piccolo Xpress machine. The Piccolo Xpress is the only portable diagnostic analyzer to offer a full complement of CLIA-waived blood chemistry tests at the point of care. Small in size, yet big on accuracy, reliability and reproducibility, the Piccolo Xpress delivers real-time blood chemistry diagnostic information within minutes for a wide range of clinical chemistry needs. Neighborhood Health will be able to promote health equity and provide high level care that is safe and timely to patients regardless of insurance, socioeconomic status, ability to pay, race or gender.
