Hartford Healthcare has eliminated labor & delivery services at Windham Hospital. Now, residents are forced to drive to Norwich, Manchester or Hartford for obstetrics care. This puts women and babies at risk! The bottom line should be what’s best for pregnant mothers and their babies – not what’s best for Hartford HealthCare’s profits.

The future of our community depends on quality and equal health care for all Windham area residents, especially our pregnant women and their babies.

Health disparities left Black Americans vulnerable to contracting COVID-19 and dying from it at higher rates, nearly two times greater than their share of the population.
