    Hartford Healthcare Community Updates-Covering a wide range of critical issues in the community such as Breast Cancer, Addiction, Flu Season and Taking Care of our Veterans. (Published Friday, Nov. 2, 2018)

    Early detection is key when it comes to breast cancer

    Connecticut has the second-highest breast cancer rate in the nation. Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute offers nationally recognized treatments as part of our partnership with Memorial Sloan Kettering– the country’s premier cancer center – that gives you the latest standards of treatment and developments from the most recent clinical research trials. Call our Cancer Connect line at 855.255.6181 or read more about Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute’s alliance with Memorial Sloan Kettering, providing innovative care close to home

    Addiction & Recovery

    At Rushford, we believe therapy is central to successful addiction recovery. In some cases of addiction, medication management can improve treatment outcomes. That's why we offer patients Medication-Assisted Treatment programs as part of our commitment to providing a full continuum of addiction treatment care. Sometimes the best course of treatment may include medications that are appropriate and necessary to complement core addiction therapies. Our dedicated and experienced staff is committed to getting you on the right path of recovery. For more information call 855.825.4026.

    Fighting the Flu

    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will only caution, as usual, that influenza activity will increase in October and November before peaking between December and February. The state Department of Public has already reported the first death associated with flu this season, a man over age 65, with a total of 22 people statewide hospitalized between Aug. 26 and Oct. 13 with laboratory-confirmed flu. GoHealth Urgent Care can help you with your flu shot.
