About Norwalk Community Hospital

One Mission. One Team. One You.

Our primary focus is on the complete care of the patient through quality, accessible healthcare available to everyone. Our collaborative team works to ensure the best outcome for each and every patient.

Our name only tells a small part of our hospital’s story, however.

As an acute care, 50-bed community hospital, we provide quality healthcare to the Norwalk and surrounding communities. This includes our 24/7 emergency department and more than a dozen specialties, including  pulmonary, gastrointestinal, cardiology, internal medicine, orthopedics, surgical services and more.

We understand we have a unique patient population and most of our physicians and employees also live in the community, and are multilingual to ensure that we communicate effectively with patients and visitors. Through this community partnership, we strive to create a culture of neighbors taking care of neighbors.

We truly are your community hospital with a convenient paramedic-receiving emergency department. We are diligently working to ensure you receive the quality care you need and deserve. Working together to improve the wellness and health of the community has always been and remains our goal.
