Background

Greenwich Hospital’s Medical Library is dedicated to serving the informational and research needs of the healthcare teams. The Community Health Resource Section, which is part of the library, is dedicated to meeting the informational needs of our patients, their families, and the community at large. The Community Health Resource Section opened in March 2015, generously funded by an anonymous donor to honor Dr. Steven Mickley.
