New London Hospital has a long history of taking care of our community. We have met and fulfilled the responsibility of providing quality care for over 94 years and we are committed to continuing that mission.

This past year brought new clinicians to New London Hospital who chose this community because of the quality of life and the opportunity to practice medicine in an environment of trust and support.  We launched our Patient and Family Centered Care initiative to strengthen our goal of caring for patients in partnership with the patient and family. We have made significant strides in implementing technology to support our caregivers and consistently improve quality throughout the organization.  And we carefully managed our financial challenges to ensure the future for the hospital and to retain experienced employees.

It is important to note that the financial challenges we faced were often beyond our control.  The Board of Trustees and senior leadership worked together to address each issue, always maintaining our focus on patient care. We will continue to provide care for many in our community who do not have the resources to afford care in keeping with our commitment to the community.

In turn, our community cares greatly for this hospital. Our Annual Fund has never been stronger and we are deeply grateful to our donors who support our work.  We will continue to build on our success and honor your investment.
