About Saint Vincent's Medical Center (Hartford Healthcare)
Since our founding by the Daughters of Charity in 1903, St. Vincent’s has been dedicated to helping patients in Bridgeport and throughout Fairfield County.
In October 2019, St. Vincent’s became part of Hartford HealthCare, the state’s most comprehensive healthcare network. Its care-delivery system serves 161 towns and cities at more than 300 locations, including seven acute-care hospitals, the state’s most extensive behavioral health network, a large multispecialty physician group, a regional home care system, an array of senior care services, and a large physical therapy and rehabilitation network.
St. Vincent’s Medical Center is a fully Catholic hospital. Our five convenient Urgent Care Centers remain available as well, and although you now see Hartford HealthCare signs at our locations, the familiar names and faces inside remain the same.
