We urge all patients to send personal belongings and all valuables (such as pocketbooks, watches, jewelry and cash,) home with a family member or friend. If you are unable to send these belongings home, the hospital will secure them in its vault and issue you a receipt for the items; you may sign for the release of your belongings when you are discharged.
Lost & Found is located in JB-162 (Jefferson Building, Rm. 162). If you find that you have left something behind following discharge, or discover something missing after an in-hospital transfer, please contact Patient Relations/Lost & Found at (860) 545-5678 as soon as you discover the loss.
