Yale New Haven Health announces plans to build comprehensive ambulatory center in Meriden

Tuesday, October 5, 2021

New Haven, CT (Oct. 5, 2021) – Yale New Haven Health (YNHHS) has announced plans to build a comprehensive outpatient center in Meriden, on the site that was the former Macy’s department store. The 179,258 square foot space is located in the Meriden Square Mall, which is located at 470 Lewis Avenue in Meriden.

“This is a great opportunity to bring services to an ever -increasing number of patients we serve from the central Connecticut region,” said Cynthia Sparer, chief ambulatory officer, YNHHS. “Using the successful blueprint Yale New Haven Heath established with the creation of our Shoreline Medical Center in Guilford, Park Avenue Medical Center in Trumbull and the Devine Street Medical Center in North Haven, we will bring the community advanced treatment options that are easily accessible and offer all of the benefits associated with Yale New Haven Health.”

The first phase of plans calls for three major services lines to offer advanced care to patients and families in collaboration with Yale Medicine through the Smilow Cancer Hospital, the Yale New Haven Heart and Vascular Center and the Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital. The Center will also open with blood draw services as well as radiology. These services will complement and support the existing physicians in the community, allowing them closer access to specialty care as well as testing services. 

“We are increasingly seeing more patients from central Connecticut travel to Yale New Haven Hospital and are looking forward to bringing our high quality care to these patients in their own community,” said Sparer.

“We are excited to have Yale New Haven within our Meriden Mall and positioning themselves into the formerly known Macy’s store,” said Joseph Feest, director of Economic Development. “This new center will help increase medical access to a growing population and provide more resources to patients in a new and convenient location.”

The planned development of the site, which should begin with construction in early 2022, with phased in services coming on line over an approximately 18-24 month timeframe. The project is targeting a completion date near the end of 2023 or early 2024. MedCraft Healthcare Real Estate partnered with Yale New Haven Health to facilitate acquisition of the vacant Macy’s store.
