Fair Haven Community Health Ground Breaking Ceremony
Construction officially broke ground on Fair Haven Community Health’s new state-of-the-art community health center on Thursday Oct. 5! Speaking at the event included Governor Ned Lamont, New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker, Congresswomen Rosa DeLauro, and Senator Richard Blumenthal.
Also joining the celebration was CDC Director Dr. Mandy Cohen.
PAC Group is the Construction Manager for the new 33,500 SF, 3-story building.
Plans for the new structure include a new neighborhood clinic and community space, which will merge existing exam rooms and build 18 new ones to create a total of 27 more spacious patient rooms.
The center will also add a pharmacy and laboratory to the space.
In preparation for the project, the Fair Haven Community Health bought and tore down adjacent properties in late 2022, including three Woolsey Street houses, five apartments and a pizza shop; a project that PAC Group also managed.
After the new building opens in 2025, the clinic hopes to expand the number of patients it sees from 32,000 to more than 65,000 per year.
