The recent merger of Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) with the Hospital of St. Raphael has created changes in the New Haven healthcare landscape.
Many questions remain about the type of services that will be available at the two campuses of Yale-New Haven Hospital.
Our physicians, care coordinators and specialty consultants are currently working only at the YNHH York Street Campus (the pre-merger Yale-New Haven facility).
When necessary, you should continue to use only the YNHH York Street emergency room.
If you require admission, you should request to be admitted to the York Street facility where you will be treated by the doctors who know you best.
If you have any questions, please call Member Services at 203-432-0246 or Care Coordination at 203-436-5791.
