You can make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime?
You can give stock and realize larger tax savings?
You can get a quarterly paycheck for life in return for a gift?

These are among creative ways to
support Hartford Hospital - ways in
which the Hospital, you and your
loved ones all benefit at the same
time. Such giving techniques are
called "planned gifts," because
with thoughtful planning you create
win-win solutions for you and the Hospital.

planned gifts, visit us on the web.

Klenes' Generous Gift Boosts Hartford Hospital 2020

Hartford Hospital 2020, which is being supported by charitable gifts, got a very generous boost earlier this month when Roger and Debbie Klene pledged $250,000 in support of the campus-wide renovation and construction project.

The Klenes' gift will support the refurbishment of the entranceway and lobby of the Education & Resource Center and an adjacent conference room, which will be renamed the Klene Court and Klene Conference Room. These areas sit outside Heublein Hall, a multi-purpose facility renovated earlier this year that provides important meeting space for the Hospital and many community organizations. more

Heart Transplant Program Celebrates Milestones

The night before he was to receive Connecticut's first successful heart transplant at Hartford Hospital, Andrew Buczek "looked forward to starting life anew. I knew my prospects for living with my damaged heart were negligible," he would say later.

Since that day in 1984, the Hospital's Henry Low Heart Center has given new life to scores of people experiencing debilitating cardiac conditions. In fact, over the Memorial Day weekend, Hartford Hospital's team of committed and gifted transplant specialists performed the 300th heart transplant at the Henry Low Heart Center. more

LIFE STAR Celebrates 25 Years of Life-saving Service

Twenty-five years ago - literally hours after the critical service was formally inaugurated by Hartford Hospital - LIFE STAR made its first flight, helping to save the life of a young woman injured in a high-speed car crash. Since then, nearly 24,000 patients have been transported by the first - and still the only - critical-care helicopter service in Connecticut.

Last month, nearly 300 guests gathered in South Windsor to celebrate LIFE STAR's 25 years of saving the lives of friends, family, loved ones and neighbors. The event also paid tribute to valuable community partners - EMTs, firefighters and other first responders - who played a pivotal role in making LIFE STAR a renowned fixture in our state's medical landscape. more
