Charlotte Hungerford Hospital’s (CHH) Emergency Department (ED) will be repaving its parking area off Litchfield Street in Torrington beginning Friday, May 11th through Saturday, May 19th, 2018.
The ED entrance will remain OPEN 24/7 however the parking lot near the ED entrance will be unavailable to park vehicles. CHH will offer a complimentary valet parking service for patients who drive themselves or are dropped-off at the ED entrance during this time. People visiting patients in the ED are asked to please park in the outpatient or main entrance parking areas if possible. Volunteers and security will be available for assistance.
This is part of the final phase of the hospital’s comprehensive, multi-year Emergency Department renovation and expansion project. The last phase of the project is anticipated to be completed in June bringing online eight additional patient rooms, a storage room, and a utility room. The $12M project was initiated last year to improve patient privacy and comfort, provide less patient waiting time, improve patient flow and efficiencies, and better accommodate larger volumes and technical advances in patient care.
The CHH Emergency Department at 540 Litchfield Street is open 24/7 year-round and can be reached at 860-496-6650. CHH also operates an Emergency Department at 115 Spencer Street in the Winsted Health Center, Winsted, daily from 9 am to 9 pm, at 860-738-6650.
