President and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Flaks
pledged to maintain a year’s worth of personal protective equipment (PPE) through and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This is the body armor our health care heroes wear on the front line every day to fight back this virus,” Flaks said in a media briefing in the system’s new 54,000-square-foot warehouse space. “This is a pivotal moment for Hartford HealthCare.”
Hartford HealthCare, which has administered more than 21,000 vaccines at seven centers statewide, spent more than $30 million on PPE in 2020, compared with $5 million in a typical year.
