“This high performing ranking is a tribute to the hard work of our staff – the nurses, the therapists, the CNAs and all are to be congratulated for a job continued to be well done,” said William Kowalewski, executive director, Southington Care Center, a not for profit member of Hartford HealthCare Senior Services.
