Excellence Every Day
Bristol Health is nationally recognized for our high quality, safety and patient experience.
At Bristol Health, our pursuit of quality is a central tenet of who we are and we are proud to be recognized for our many quality achievements, from our Magnet nursing designation to being the #1 full-service hospital in Connecticut in preventing hospital-acquired infections.
As a small, independent community health system, we have a commitment to excellence that exceeds our smaller footprint. Because, as we believe, "Bigger isn't better, better is better."
At Bristol Health, we have made infection control a priority. Every year, some 2 million people, including nearly 250,000 hospital patients, become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics, which are an important and common treatment for many diseases. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) estimates that 23,000 people die from these infections.
Bristol Hospital received an “A” grade from the Leapfrog Group, a national non-profit organization that evaluates hospitals on quality and safety.
Bristol Hospital was one of just five hospitals in Connecticut to receive an A grade. Grades are given out each spring and fall, and are based on performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents, infections and other harms to patients. We are proud to have received an “A” grade each year since 2017.
Bristol Hospital is one of just 18 hospitals in Connecticut to receive 3 stars on Hospital Compare, an online database of information on more than 4,000 hospitals in the US. The overall rating summarizes a variety of quality measures, including mortality, safety and care, readmission, patient experience, effectiveness of care, timeliness of care and efficient use of medical imaging.
Hospital Compare was created by CMS and other partners, including consumers, employer and accrediting organizations, to help patients make better decisions about where to get their health care.

Bristol Hospital has received the Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission. The Joint Commission is a national accrediting organization and this accreditation reflects our commitment to meeting certain performance standards.
A number of Bristol Health entities are recognized as Gold Star sites by the Joint Commission, including Home Care & Hospice, Bristol Hospital, Rehab Dynamics and the Bristol Health Counseling Center.
Bristol Health is the first hospital in Hartford County to achieve Magnet status. The Magnet Award recognizes exemplary nursing practice that shines above the rest, a healthcare environment where you can find comfort bringing your family.
Nursing presents best practice to internal and external audiences cultivating a relationship of trust and education. Our nursing culture promotes mindfulness and self-care, a physical and mental rejuvenation, cultivating a patient care focus on quality and satisfaction. Collaboration with our interprofessional teams helps develop strong bonds and improve communication across the continuum for patient safety.
Our qualities of transformational leadership in nursing practice promise a bright and healthy tomorrow in the future of healthcare excellence.
