On Monday, June 1st, Yale-New Haven Hospital officially opened its new outpatient medical center in Old Saybrook, a 24,500-square-foot renovation project designed by The S/L/A/M Collaborative (SLAM). The Old Saybrook Medical Center is now able to offer a broad array of clinical services including pediatric specialty services, a comprehensive Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Center, Musculoskeletal services, Urology and Vascular services, Blood Draw, Medical Imaging, Allergy/Immunology, Physical Therapy, Rheumatology, X-ray services, Ultrasounds and specialty healthcare services for adults and children.
Yale-New Haven Hospital offers convenient access to skilled specialists and advanced healthcare treatments closer to home with 289 services in 131 different locations across 24 different Connecticut towns and cities. Conveniently located from Interstate 95 and Route 9, the new multi-disciplinary outpatient facility is complete with the latest technology and amenities offering convenient access to skilled specialists and advanced healthcare treatments for Middlesex and New London County area residents.
“With the patient experience as our priority, the project challenges the traditional outpatient setting and opts to create a more streamlined, consistent, and ultimately, a more pleasant experience for both patients and staff.” says Doug Mayne, AIA, SLAM Project Designer. “The project explores several new ideas such as: central check-in and registration; integrated imaging and procedure space; modular exam rooms; collaborative work areas for staff; and is intended to serve as a prototype for future outpatient efforts within the YNHH system.”
Yale-New Haven Hospital hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 26th for the new medical center which SLAM project team members attended. The new medical center is located at 633 Middlesex Turnpike in Old Saybrook.
