Caring for Our Neighbors in Need

At Saint Mary’s Hospital, our commitment to the less-fortunate runs deep.

Every year, Saint Mary’s goes above and beyond to help underserved members of our community. In 2012, Saint Mary’s provided more than $22 million in community benefits, including $8.5 million in “charity care”—healthcare services provided to uninsured or underinsured patients without reimbursement.


Saint Mary’s has a special commitment to our community’s homeless population. In 2013, Saint Mary’s physicians and staff once again teamed up with United Way of Greater Waterbury for Project Homeless Connect. Held each year at the Waterbury Armory, this event provides housing and employment resources, food, hot showers, free health screenings, and other services to people experiencing homelessness and those who are vulnerable to becoming homeless.

Saint Mary’s is passionate about improving access to basic healthcare needs and continues to support Malta House of Care - Waterbury, Inc., staffing its free mobile healthcare van for uninsured patients. Last year, Saint Mary’s also appointed Nurse Navigator Robin Cracco, RN, MSN, to work with vulnerable populations who seek care in the Emergency Department, connecting them to appropriate services and increasing their use of free or low-cost primary care resources.
