Nuvance Health is governed by a 17-member Board of Trustees. With seven hospitals, more than 2,600 aligned physicians, and 11,000 employees, Nuvance Health serves more than 1.5 million residents across western Connecticut and the Hudson River Valley. This region benefits from a strong economic base and a stable to growing population.  The system’s flagship hospitals, Danbury Hospital and Vassar Brothers Medical Center, each benefit from geographic positioning with minimal significant hospital-based service competition, while Norwalk Hospital operates within a highly competitive Fairfield County market.
