Hartford and its surrounding suburbs offer cultural icons including the Bushnell Theater, the Mark Twain House and the Wadsworth Atheneum, along with superb shopping and fine dining.

West Hartford was recently named one of Kiplinger’s Top 10 Best Cities for the Next Decade, and was also listed as one of the Best Places to Live in 2010 and 2012 by CNN Money Magazine. Just one of the many reasons: Blue Back Square, a thriving mix of acclaimed dining, upscale shopping and unique residences.

The nearby New Haven area serves up its own world-class restaurants, museums and attractions. The world’s two largest casinos—Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun—are close by on Connecticut’s sparkling coastline. And all that Boston and New York offer is less than two hours away.


Connecticut is home to many nationally acclaimed school systems, private schools and colleges, from primary grades through the Ivy League. In the 2013 U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools rankings, Connecticut included 11 gold medal schools, 24 silver medal schools and four bronze medal schools.

West Hartford is especially known for excellence in education—the town’s two public high schools are ranked second and sixth in the state.

Dental benefits are available through a traditional dental plan option. The plan gives employees the freedom to use any dental provider they wish. Preventive and diagnostic services are covered at 100%. The plan also covers basic and major restorative services with applicable deductible and co-payments.

Disability Coverage

If an employee is unable to work due to illness or injury, Hartford HealthCare provides a short-term plan for full- and part-time employees to help them meet their financial responsibilities. This plan provides paid sick time, based on an employee’s paid service time, up to 1,040 hours at their base rate of pay.

In addition, Hartford HealthCare offers hospital-paid long-term disability insurance coverage to full-time employees, providing a monthly benefit equal to 60% of your pay up to $2,000 or $5,000 per month.
