SHU partners with Yale New Haven Health for student health care

0

FAIRFIELD, Conn.—Sacred Heart University partners with Yale New Haven Health’s Northeast Medical Group (NEMG) to provide health care for students. This arrangement will mean expanded health services available to all SHU students.

Beginning August 15, students will receive their health services at Yale New Haven Health’s state-of-the-art Park Avenue Medical Center, located down the street from campus at 5520 Park Avenue, Trumbull. SHU will provide a shuttle to and from the medical center.

The partnership gives students better access to medical care, as SHU health services will now be part of the larger Yale New Haven health system, and NEMG will provide coordinated health care. All Bridgeport Hospital and Yale New Haven Health resources will be available to students.

Students will also see some familiar faces as most of the SHU Health Services team will move to NEMG. Telehealth options will also be available in the evenings and on weekends.

“We are thrilled about this partnership with Yale New Haven Health and Northeast Medical Group,” said SHU Dean of Students Larry Wielk. “It will provide a wider range of services and more healthcare options for our students.”

“Yale New Haven Health is very pleased to partner with Sacred Heart,” said Anne Diamond, executive vice president of Yale New Haven Health and president of Bridgeport Hospital. “This collaboration will provide world-class care for students, day and night, very close to campus with seamless transitions to next-level care if ever needed.”

NEMG and SHU will continue to work closely with the Orthopedic Specialty Group, which will provide ongoing management of sports medicine for student-athletes.
