In 1888, a woman’s compassion at the scene of a tragic train accident triggered concerned leaders to take action to help provide care for those in need. Thanks to the steadfast support of neighbors who understood what an outstanding hospital means to the well-being of a community, Norwalk Hospital became a reality in 1893. In the first year, 31 patients were cared for. Today, that number exceeds 315,000!
For 125 years, Norwalk Hospital has been at the forefront of providing quality, compassionate care to the residents of Fairfield County. While much has changed over the years, a common theme resonates – an unwavering commitment to provide exceptional patient care to every person in our community– close to home.
