The latest updates are listed below – please read our FAQs for more information.

Our Emergency Department is open 24/7/365. 
  • Our Emergency Department team remains ready to serve all our community’s urgent needs, just as we always have. There are no planned changes to the hours or services offered in our Emergency Department.

We are expanding access to primary care in our region.
  • Hired two new primary care clinicians and continue our recruitment efforts
  • Partnered with the Torrington-based Federally Qualified Health Center to bring expanded access to care through its mobile wellness van in Sharon Hospital’s parking lot, one day a week
  • Opened the Telehealth Kiosk at Sharon Hospital, where patients with limited internet access can attend telehealth appointments with their clinician

Regulatory Updates:
  • Connecticut’s Office of Health Strategy (OHS) is reviewing Sharon Hospital’s application regarding the proposed consolidation of the essential care currently offered in our ICU into a new Progressive Care Unit. We are currently responding to completeness questions, a standard step in the CON process. Sharon Hospital will continue providing the vast majority of our current services—including ventilation and telemetry monitoring—in this new unit, while more effectively assigning our space, staff and resources.
  • OHS recently marked Sharon Hospital’s Certificate of Need application to close Labor and Delivery “complete” after one round of completeness questions. As a next step, OHS will reach out to schedule a hearing. We expect them to reach out within the coming weeks.
