YNHHS celebrates new orthopedic practice on Masonicare campus 

On Nov. 5, Yale New Haven Health System and Yale Medicine unveiled the newest addition to their growing orthopedic services on Masonicare’s Wallingford campus. YNHHS completely renovated the first floor of the medical office building at 67 Masonic Ave. to offer comprehensive orthopedic services. Yale Medicine physician specialists provide surgical and non-surgical interventions, sports medicine and treatment for various conditions of the hand, wrist, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, foot and spine. The site features 10 exam rooms and X-ray.

“We are very proud and excited to realize our goal of bringing services to central Connecticut, and to collaborate with Masonicare, which shares our vision and our values,” said Keith Churchwell, MD, Yale New Haven Hospital president. “Our ambitious plans to open this site in October of 2020 were temporarily put on hold by the pandemic. Yale Medicine and Yale New Haven Health remained steadfast in our commitment to this community and assembled a team of orthopedic specialists, advanced practice providers and radiology technicians for patients at this new site.”

Masonicare, which owns the three-floor medical building, leased the 7,688-square-foot space to YNHH.

“We are delighted to have Yale New Haven Health on campus,” said Masonicare president and CEO Jon-Paul Venoit. “We share a common commitment to the highest standards of quality care and service, and are thrilled to help bring this caliber of orthopedic service to Wallingford and neighboring communities.”

In addition to orthopedics, Yale Medicine will offer neurology physician services at 67 Masonic Ave.
