Over the course of four weeks in October, Information Technology Services (ITS) relocated more than 200 staff members to the hospital's North Haven facility where they occupy the third and fourth floors.

Employees relocated from 300 George Street, 1 Church Street and Finance South offices in New Haven. The North Haven location is now home to ITS administration, network and server services, application support, desktop engineering, information security, imaging information systems and web development.

"For the first time, we will have nearly all of our information technology services in the same footprint," said Edward Fisher, vice president, Information Technology Services. "Working in one building on only two floors will add to our efficiency, allow us to improve our service performance and increase collegiality within our department."

In January, 2013, Yale-New Haven Hospital will open the facility as a medical center that includes a walk-in/primary care center. The 120,000-square foot, four-story building — formerly owned by AT&T — at 6 Devine Street will also house a Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Center and an interventional immunology center that consists of various specialties including neurology and rheumatology. The site will offer onsite MRI and digital X-ray imaging, and laboratory and blood draw services.
