A Proud History of Caring
An admired community hospital, Charlotte Hungerford was founded in 1916 through a gift from an area industrialist. In the words of that era, it was conceived to be a beacon of hope and a place of comfort for the ill and injured in northwest Connecticut. Charlotte Hungerford Hospital is a 109-bed acute care facility encompassing 250,000 square feet of healthcare services and administrative offices in three buildings on our main campus of 120 acres in Torrington, Connecticut. Charlotte and its network of Service providers offer a full range of medical, imaging, Rehabilitation, behavioral heath, emergency, and ambulatory services.

Litchfield County… A Welcoming Place
Located in Connecticut’s northwest hills, Litchfield County is part of one of the most desirable places to live in the United States. Born out of wide expanses of farmland still in evidence today, our area is protected by land trusts, individuals, and organizations that value an environment where trees, open spaces, and hills far outnumber our population. It is a great place to live, work, and play. To raise a family.
CHH is located in Torrington, the largest community in Litchfield County. Torrington, now in the midst of tremendous redevelopment initiatives, is surrounded by a mix of small towns, villages, and hamlets … each unique … each enjoyable. CHH is proud of our work and our healthcare contributions to all of our communities.
We are a great place to work, learn, and grow, and we hope you will consider joining our team when it is time. You will love this part of the country.
