UConn John Dempsey Hospital at UConn Health
UConn John Dempsey Hospital at UConn Health is a university teaching hospital with a focus on patient care, along with clinical and basic science research. We treat the entire spectrum of inpatient and outpatient orthopaedic care, across all subspecialties.
The Musculoskeletal Institute (MSI) represents a consortium of clinical services that includes Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, the Comprehensive Spine Center, our Osteoporosis Center, and Rheumatology.
Research is also a core component of MSI with seven basic science research faculty and four clinical faculty who have active basic science research labs. We have a number of other laboratories that are committed to various aspects of musculoskeletal basic science research too.
Our institute has a dedicated facility on UConn Health’s lower campus that is entirely committed to musculoskeletal care.
