Yale-New Haven Hospital - 100 Great Hospitals in America | 2014

Yale-New Haven (Conn.) Hospital. Yale-New Haven Hospital, the 1,541-bed teaching hospital for Yale School of Medicine, dates back to 1826. As the first hospital in Connecticut, Yale-New Haven has played a distinct role in American history.

Today, Yale-New Haven Hospital includes the Smilow Cancer Hospital — a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center — along with a Yale-children's hospital and psychiatric hospital. Yale-New Haven Hospital is Magnet-designated for nursing excellence, ranked as the No. 1 hospital in Connecticut by U.S. News & World Report and tied to more than 4,800 physicians.

Recently, Yale-New Haven and Yale University formed a transatlantic healthcare and research alliance with University College London. Clinicians and biomedics involved in the alliance began work on translational research for cardiovascular disease, hepatology and nephrology, among other clinical areas. Also, the hospital partnered with anti-poverty think tank Rock and Wrap It Up! last year for a sustainability program, in which prepared hospital food that has not yet been served is preserved and donated to community soup kitchens, churches and those in need throughout south central Connecticut.
