Fairfield, CT. (Aug. 11, 2022) – Sacred Heart University is partnering with Yale New Haven Health’s Northeast Medical Group (NEMG) to provide student health care. This arrangement will mean expanded health services available to all SHU students.

Effective 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 greater access to medical care as SHU’s health services will now be part of the wider Yale New Haven Health System, and NEMG will provide coordinated healthcare. All Bridgeport Hospital and Yale New Haven Health resources will be available to students.

Students will also see familiar faces as most of the SHU health services team will be moving to NEMG. Telehealth options will also be available for evenings and weekend hours.

“We are excited 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 health-care options for our students.”

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

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