Yale New Haven Hospital unveils plans for $838M neurosciences center

Yale New Haven (Conn.) Hospital plans to build an $838 million neurosciences center on its on its Saint Raphael campus in New Haven, the institution announced April 29.

The new 505,000square-foot project would include two patient facilities, with a combined 204 inpatient beds, according to the hospital. It would focus on innovation in the neurosciences and  be one of the largest such projects in Connecticut's history.

“We firmly believe that this new facility will change the landscape of healthcare and draw patients from throughout the region and nation,” said Marna Borgstrom, CEO of Yale New Haven Health and Yale New Haven Hospital.  “While this represents a landmark investment in our patients, it was also very important to us that we move this project forward in full partnership with the City of New Haven, the state and the local community. We are proud to work together to advance the promise of exceptional care for our patients.” 

As part of the project, the hospital will decant portions of its current decades-old, 300-bed east pavilion. Yale New Haven officials said the hospital has agreed to work with the City of New Haven to improve quality health outcomes for city employees for less money.

The neurosciences center will be built within the current Saint Raphael campus footprint. According to the hospital, its main entrance will move from Chapel Street to George Street, and the parking garage on Orchard Street will be extended to George Street. A new 200-space underground garage is also part of the project.
