A Brief History of Mount Sinai Rehabilitation Hospital

The Early 1990's

Timothy Moynihan, president of the Hartford Chamber of Commerce, Robert B. Bruner, President and Executive Director of Mount Sinai Hospital, and David D’Eramo, President and CEO of Saint Francis Hospital, announcing the affiliation of Mount Sinai Hospital and Saint Francis in 1994.

A merger is planned between Mount Sinai Hospital and Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center. In answer to a region-wide need for acute rehabilitative services, the decision is made to build a new rehabilitation hospital on the grounds of the former Mount Sinai Hospital campus to accommodate the rehabilitation needs of the region.

Architect's elevation of the main entryway to the new Hospital. An early architectural concept for the new Hospital.

Ground is broken for the Rehabilitation Hospital of Connecticut, a sixty-bed institution anchoring a comprehensive, regional system of inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services.
