Bloomfield turns 208
Two hundred and eight years ago today, the Bloomfield Retreat, as it was first known, opened its doors to those “afflicted with disorders of the mind”. Our hospital has been providing mental health care ever since, treating people with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, Huntington’s disease, schizophrenia, and more.
Each year, we mark this day with a small celebration in memory of all of the staff, residents, and volunteers who have been part of life at Bloomfield for over two centuries. Here’s to many more years!
