Welcome to Chelsea Place Care Center
Dear Resident and Family Members,
I would like to welcome you to Chelsea Place Care Center. Chelsea Place is a 234 bed skilled nursing care center located in the Mark Twain neighborhood of the historic West End of Hartford, CT. At Chelsea Place we celebrate the diversity among our residents, families, neighborhood and staff. It’s through this diversity that we are able to most effectively meet the healthcare challenges of our resident population and the community at large.
Chelsea Place has a broad scope of services, but despite having such a broad base we strongly encourage all of our staff to get to know all of the residents, their interests, needs and personalities.

Our ability to retain knowledgeable and skilled professionals has contributed greatly towards our continuing improvement and success and has enabled Chelsea Place Care Center to partner with other leading healthcare organizations across the State. Continue reading
