Throwback Thursday: Recognize this building


From Feb. 5-8, 1953, the hospital held an open house for its brand-new Memorial Unit (now known as the East Pavilion), welcoming 15,000 visitors from the community. The new building, at 20 York St., added 336 new inpatient beds and seven new operating rooms to the hospital campus. The expansion of the hospital from the New Haven Unit on Howard Avenue was due to community needs and the merger of Grace Hospital and the New Haven Hospital. From 1945 and 1965, the hospital was known as the Grace-New Haven Community Hospital.
