Connecticut hospitals and health systems generated $27.7 billion in economic activity in 2017, and invested $1.7 billion in community benefit initiatives, according to reports released last week by the Connecticut Hospital Association. “Connecticut hospitals and health systems provide high quality care for everyone, both in the hospital setting and in our communities,” said CHA CEO Jennifer Jackson. “In addition to improving lives, they also strengthen the state’s economy. Vibrant hospitals and health systems require support and collaboration from government and many other sectors, and it is important to work together to build a better, healthier future for Connecticut.”
