Gov. Malloy and Lt. Gov. Wyman Applaud Commitment by CVS to Keep Aetna’s Headquarters in Hartford for at Least the Next Ten Years

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman released the following statements regarding the commitment letter that CVS Health Corporation delivered today to the Connecticut Insurance Department, wherein the company pledged to keep Aetna’s headquarters in Hartford for at least the next ten years, maintain its current staffing levels in the state for at least the next four years, and honor existing philanthropic agreements:

Governor Malloy said, “Hartford has been Aetna’s home since 1853 and I am thrilled that the capital city will remain the company’s home for the foreseeable future. CVS Health is a strong corporate partner for the city and state, and we welcome this long-term commitment. Today’s news is yet another positive step for Hartford and the capital region, coming on the heels of several major jobs announcements in the past year. I am confident that the city will continue to emerge as a hub for business, and Aetna’s continued presence is the economic backbone for long-term success. I am grateful to CEO Larry Merlo and his team at CVS for their understanding of the tremendous assets – including a best-in-class workforce – that Hartford has to offer.”

Lt. Governor Wyman said, “Aetna has been an anchor in Hartford for more than a century. The commitment by CVS to keep Aetna’s headquarters in Hartford for at least the next ten years is wonderful news for both Hartford and the state. Hartford has always been known as the insurance capital, and it is only fitting that they remain a driving force of economic growth in the region. I look forward to their continued partnership with the state and our capital city.”
