Sharon Hospital’s primary service area includes the northeastern area of Dutchess County in New York, as well as the western parts of Litchfield County in Connecticut, including New Milford and Torrington. From a patient flow perspective, patients come to Sharon from both states, with about 55% of patients from Connecticut and 43% of patients from New York. Like many communities in New York State and Connecticut, Sharon Hospital’s service area is experiencing minimal population growth with gradual declines in the numbers of young families and children. The largest demographic growth is expected in the number of residents aged 65 and older and from 2018 to 2028, the percent change in the 65‐plus age range is projected to be over 20%.
Sharon’s Strategic Plan (2022) ‐ Vision for Success Sharon Hospital 2022 represents a fundamental turn‐around of the hospital’s position in the region, its sustainability as a critical resource for the region, its overall quality, and its financial contributions. From 2022 forward, Sharon Hospital is envisioned to continue its vital role as a community hospital, providing quality care in its core service lines (behavioral health, emergency care, general surgery, respiratory disease, cardiac disease, stroke) and serving as an integrated channel for more acute care services to the tertiary hub(s) of Nuvance Health and other systems located in Connecticut.
