[July 2008] The Yale-New Haven Shoreline Medical Center (YNHSMC) emergency department began 24-hour service starting today, July 7. The YNHSMC opened in July 2004, and through the increase in demand for services, the emergency department will expand to 24-hour care.
"We are pleased to offer 24-hour high quality medical care through our emergency department beginning July 7," said Harry Moscovitz, M.D., medical director, YNHSMC. "The increased demand for high-quality medical services that our emergency department provides to the shoreline communities has led us to take the steps necessary to ensure our commitment to this community extends to meet their ever growing needs."
YNHSMC offers ambulatory surgery to pre-admission services, laboratory and blood work services, radiology, nuclear medicine and health education programs. The facility also includes three surgical operating rooms, two endoscopy suites, radiation therapy for cancer patients, MRI and CT scan capabilities along with myriad exam and post-anesthesia recovery rooms, as well as physician offices and a nutritionist.
