The Connecticut Health Council emerged from the Alliance’s 2011 strategic planning process and publicizes Connecticut’s unique base of health sector assets that include health insurance companies, hospitals, medical schools, research capacity, and specialty practices. The combination of these assets clearly positions Connecticut as a center of health excellence, a position that has been enhanced with the State’s one billion dollar commitment to the UConn Health Center and Jackson Laboratory campuses. Connecticut’s health sector includes many of the State’s most valued employers that generate more than $140 billion in annual revenue and that provide over 200,000 jobs.
