Yale New Haven Hospital announces major investment on Saint Raphael campus

New Haven

A big investment at Yale New Haven Hospital could mean more jobs for the Elm City. 

Renderings offer a look at a one-stop-shop for patients living with some of the most challenging neurological diseases like multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons, and stroke. 

“These patients have a lot to deal with, and this is going to provide in-patient, out-patient, diagnostic treatments, clinical trials,” explained CEO of Yale New Haven Hospital Marna Borgstrom. 

The hospital announced plans to build a new $838 million neurosciences center on its Saint Raphael Campus. It means hundreds of construction and permanent jobs.

“Many medical schools have specialties in many areas, but where Yale really stands out in the nation is in the neurosciences. We’re actually number one in NIH funding, National Institutes of Health Funding, in the country,” explained Robert Alpern, M.D. and Dean of Yale School of Medicine.

Two new buildings will be constructed where three buildings currently stand.

The project covers 505,000 square feet and features 204 patient beds. It includes a new 200-car parking lot.

City officials are touting this as an economic win for New Haven.

The hospital will advance over $8 million in building and permit fees

Mayor Toni Harp said the investment is key given lower revenue from the state. 

“The fact that they’re willing to do this is very important for New Haven taxpayers,” she said.
