Our Mission

To serve as a catalyst that engages residents and communities in shaping a health system that provides universal access to quality health care and promotes health in Connecticut. We believe that health care is a fundamental right and that our work is part of a broader movement for social and economic justice.

Our Accomplishments

Developing broad-based partnerships of consumers, stakeholders and leaders from the private, public and philanthropic sectors has come to define our work. In 2009, we celebrated passage of SustiNet, landmark legislation shaped by the Foundation and our partners from the health care, consumer-advocacy, faith and labor communities. Building block legislation passed in 2011 shaped, among other things, the direction of the new state health insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  Thanks to strong collaboration, we’re building a better future for all Connecticut residents.  

Our Vision of Transformation:

We are committed to achieving transformative change in health care. We envision a sustainable system of delivery and finance that makes quality and affordable health care accessible to all Connecticut residents -- and helps improve health.
