Yale New Haven Health and the city of West Haven announce plans for developing property

Monday, October 2, 2017
New Haven, CT (October 2, 2017) – In August, Yale New Haven Health finalized the purchase of land at 600 Derby Avenue in West Haven. The 117 acre property will soon be home to the Yale New Haven Health Regional Operations Center (ROC).

“We intend to build a strategic operations center and distribution facility for medical supplies that can serve the entire health care system,” said Stephen J. Carbery, vice president, Facilities, Design, Construction and Real Estate, YNHHS. “As the health system looks to reduce costs and improve efficiencies, this land will provide us the ability to build a combined services and distribution center for medical supplies that can serve our entire health system and other clinical partners.”

The ROC will be a mostly one-story 140,000 sq. ft. building with a mezzanine. The building will be staffed by approximately 90-95 managers and staff with half of those positions to be newly created jobs. Yale New Haven will continue to use its Howard Avenue warehouse in the former SEAMCO building.

“The great city of West Haven is eager to work with Yale New Haven Health on this exciting new frontier of development on Route 34,” Mayor Edward M. O’Brien said. “Yale New Haven Health is the gold standard for health care systems worldwide, so it is fitting that one of West Haven’s crown jewel development sites – a picturesque parcel fronted by the Maltby Lakes reservoir and surrounded by woods – will serve as the future home of an advanced warehouse for distributing medical supplies throughout the Yale New Haven Health System.”

YNHHS intends to submit it plans for review to the city in October and the team is targeting a March 2019 opening.
