Thank you for entrusting Stamford Health with your care. While patient-centered care is often mentioned in a variety of ways, we emphasize the importance of delivering care in a way that works best for you.

We treat you and your loved ones as individuals to be cared for, not just a condition to be treated. This notion is ingrained in our Planetree philosophy of care. That means providing the absolute finest in care across the entire continuum—from prevention and wellness to diagnosis, treatment and ongoing support.

Your stay with us will be safe. We hold ourselves up to the highest standards as proven by our recognition for safety and quality improvement and Joint Commission Accreditation, a certification that is considered nationwide as the gold seal for hospital care. We’re also a verified Level II trauma center as designated by the American College of Surgeons.

We have proven excellence in nursing. Stamford Hospital is among roughly 7 percent of hospitals nationwide to have been granted Magnet status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program®. This means we are recognized for providing you with the highest levels of safety, quality and patient satisfaction
