Patient and Visitor Safety

COVID-19 Message From CEO

This mask is our freedom. I saw this on a sign in New York and it struck a chord with me. Just as the course of COVID-19 has changed over time, so too has our perspective on the disease. So much was uncertain months ago, and much remains to be seen." - Kathleen Silard, Stamford Health President & CEO.
