Saint Francis Care Re-Opens Dedicated Primary Care Practice for City and State Employees

(Hartford, Conn. March 9, 2015) - Saint Francis Care Connect@City Hall will resume patient appointments following the successful search for an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) to manage the site under the supervision of a Saint Francis physician. 

Walk-in care for City and State employees and their families will be available from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.   

Saint Francis Care Connect@City Hall is a 1,000-square-foot space on the ground floor at City Hall, at the Prospect Street entrance. It includes two exam rooms, a receptionist and waiting area. The site offers convenience for employees who have basic healthcare needs and cannot get in to see their primary care physician, or for employees without a usual source of primary care.   

The site provides treatment for minor illnesses such as allergy symptoms, cough, pink eye, sore/strep throat, upper respiratory infection, ear ache, urinary tract infection, minor cuts and burns, ankle/knee sprains, bug bites, etc.  Health screenings include asthma, blood pressure, diabetes (glucose) and other lab testing referrals.  Testing for blood sugar, flu, cholesterol, and pregnancy are among those available at the clinic. 

The practice communicates with patients’ primary care physicians to ensure continuity of care. For patients without a primary care physician a referral to a primary care physician is offered. More complex needs will be navigated to appropriate providers.              

The clinic originally began operations in May, 2012. 

To contact the Clinic, please call (860) 714-7420.
