Hospital for Special Care

       

Hospital for Special Care (HSC), with locations in New Britain and Hartford, Connecticut, is the only long-term acute-care hospital in the nation serving adults and children. HSC is nationally recognized for advanced care and rehabilitation in the highly specialized areas of pulmonary care, acquired brain injury, medically-complex pediatrics, neuromuscular disorders and spinal cord injury.

Responding to the needs of a rising patient population, HSC now leads Connecticut by recently opening the first comprehensive inpatient heart failure unit in the state.

The Neuromuscular Center at Hospital for Special Care is the largest and most comprehensive neuromuscular care and clinical research facility in the state. The Center treats over 1000 patients annually in one of four multi disciplinary and specialized weekly clinics - including the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Clinic for Adults, MDA Clinic for Children, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association (ALSA) Clinic, and a Neuropathy Clinic. The Center's Research & Clinical Trials Unit experiments with promising new medications - hoping to find cures for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and other chronic neuromuscular disorders.

Hospital for Special Care operates inpatient and outpatient facilities serving Southern New England on a not-for-profit basis, and is one of the tenth largest, free-standing long-term acute care hospitals in the United States.
