Today, more people with ALS are living at home. ALS is a progressive disorder that affects the function of nerves and muscle. Hospital for Special Care (HSC) provides care to more than 250 Connecticut residents with ALS. It is a hospital with the courage to believe that even the most difficult diseases can’t stop people from truly living.
HSC is one of the five largest, free-standing long-term acute care hospitals in the United States and the nation’s only long-term acute-care hospital serving adults and children. HSC is recognized for advanced care and rehabilitation in pulmonary care, acquired brain injury, medically-complex pediatrics, neuromuscular disorders (including ALS research), spinal cord injury, comprehensive heart failure as well as diagnostic, assessment and consulting services for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders.
Located in New Britain and Hartford, CT, HSC operates inpatient and outpatient facilities serving Southern New England and the Tri-State area on a not-for-profit basis. For the latest news and information, please visit www.hfsc.org, and follow us on Twitter @HospSpecialCare.
