HARTFORD (January 29, 2020) – As of January 25, 2020, Parkville Care Center marked one year as part of the iCare Health Network.
In the course of 2019, Parkville had the opportunity to host Governor Ned Lamont and Mayor Luke Bronin (on several occasions), partner with local Hispanic and community groups, march in the Puerto Rican Day and West Indian Independence Parades, celebrate a neighborhood Fiestas Patronales, construct a Polar Express Train to chug through the center for Christmas and seen the return of staff and expansions of programs.
The 150-bed skilled nursing care center was previously Park Place Health Center and emerged to operate under the name Parkville Care Center as recognition of its important place and history in the Parkville neighborhood of Hartford. Park Place had played a vital role in skilled nursing and long-term care for the City and region, especially for the Hispanic population it has historically served and Parkville Care Center has continued to fulfill this role.
Parkville Care Center will continue to provide short-term rehabilitation, post-acute care, transitional care and memory care & support services. iCare Health Network will continue the care center’s extensive commitment to culturally competent clinical care, therapies and supports for the Hispanic population.
At the time Parkville joined iCare, Chris Wright, President and CEO of iCare Health Network had said, “We’re thrilled to have Parkville join the iCare Health Network. We knew this would be a great fit given the work we have done in the State of Connecticut over the last twenty years. Our track record includes providing quality care to our residents while restoring skilled nursing centers to healthy operating status.”
