Physician Relations Team Our team of physician liaisons work to strengthen the relationship between Connecticut Children’s, our providers, and our community partners. We ensure our referring partners are fully educated with information about our world class clinical programs, have knowledge of the new providers joining our team, and are informed of important hospital initiatives and expansion plans. We foster an open line of communication with all partner practices and resolve any barriers or challenges they may face. The physician relations team strives to be great stewards of their loyalty and show continued appreciation for partnering with us in the care of their patients.
