The Power of the Human Touch  

Greenwich Hospital sets the standard for care by staying at the forefront of medical advancements, while never forgetting the healing powers of the human touch.

Consider the skin-to-skin or “kangaroo” care provided by our maternity department at every delivery, where newborns are placed on the mother’s chest minutes after birth.  Kangaroo care is crucial to the family bonding process for all newborns, especially babies who stay in our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for specialized care.

Our caregivers also provide the human touch also means keeping people healthy and safe by hosting educational forums.  The annual Diabetes Health Fair will offer information about the latest treatments. We’ve taken the lead in managing and treating this diabetes at the Weight Loss and Diabetes Center.

The experts from the Center for Healthy Aging will provide tips on keeping older adults safe at a fall prevention program. The hospital’s Women’s Health Initiative will present a special forum on genetic screening for cancer risk.

If you want to celebrate summer and a worthy cause, please join us at Under the Stars, the annual fundraiser for our pediatric department and the NICU, both perfect examples of technology and the human touch coming together to perform miracles.
