Because of the generous support of our donors and sponsors, the Black & Red netted $1.1 million for Hartford HealthCare’s Heart & Vascular Institute at Hartford Hospital! The funds raised will go a long way to help us to set the standard for world-class cardiac care in Connecticut, and provide the clinical excellence and leading-edge research that is the foundation from which we will further innovation and cardiovascular disease management.
