Webster Honored for Ongoing Support of Connecticut’s Hospital for Special Care

(6/17/11) — Webster Bank was recently honored for its longtime partnership and shared vision with the Hospital for Special Care (HSC), the only long-term acute-care hospital in the nation serving adults and children with locations in New Britain and Hartford, Conn.


For the 2009-2010 federal fiscal year that ended September 30, Webster made 68 SBA loans valued at $21.4 million. For the ninth straight year, Webster was the state's top SBA 504 lender, and it was also Connecticut's number one lender for the SBA's America's Recovery Capital (ARC) Loan Program.


Webster received the annual Lendl Award at the 16th Annual Hospital for Special Care Ivan Lendl Golf Classic held in May at the Wethersfield (Conn.) Country Club. The event raised more than $120,000 to support the hospital’s adaptive sports and therapeutic recreation programs for adults and children living with physical disabilities. Funds raised at the tournament support the Hospital for Special Care Ivan Lendl Adaptive Sports Camp, held each August on the grounds of St. Joseph’s College in West Hartford, Conn.


HSC is nationally recognized for advanced care and rehabilitation in the highly specialized areas of pulmonary care, acquired brain injury, medically-complex pediatrics, neuromuscular disorders and spinal cord injury. Responding to the needs of a rising patient population, HSC recently opened the first Comprehensive Inpatient Heart Failure Unit in Connecticut.
