Waterbury, CT (October 28, 2019) - ConnectiCare, one of Connecticut’s leading health plans, recently renovated and expanded its ConnectiCare Center at 835 Wolcott Street in Waterbury. The expansion added approximately 1,000 square feet to the center, allowing ConnectiCare to provide a wider range of services to its members and the surrounding community.
The Waterbury center has provided the public with help selecting, understanding and utilizing health plans since 2017. The volume of visitors during 2018 led to the expansion of the center. The renovated center now includes an expanded event space where ConnectiCare can host fitness classes, health seminars, community partners, and more. In 2020, the expanded center will include certified diabetes nurse educators, on-site nurses and social workers that can help educate members on a variety of health and wellness related topics.
“Our ConnectiCare centers across the state offer visitors individualized service and personal attention,” said Eric Galvin, President of ConnectiCare. “Our members can get answers to questions, learn how to get the most from their health plans, find doctors and join fitness classes. ConnectiCare member or not, everyone is welcome to stop by and get health plan recommendations and participate in educational programs. We’re delighted to be in Waterbury creating healthier futures for our customers and the community.”
“We’re fortunate to have ConnectiCare looking out for the health of Waterbury’s residents,” said Joseph McGrath, Director of Economic Development for the City of Waterbury. “The ConnectiCare Center is a tremendous resource and helps us in our mission to promote healthier families, neighborhoods, and communities.”
“ConnectiCare is serving a great need here in the City of Waterbury,” said State Representative Geraldo Reyes. “Healthcare can be very complicated and this center will help make it easier for residents to understand their benefits and get the care they need.”
