In 1971, Yale University began a unique and historic experiment in providing health services to its faculty, staff, and students through a multidisciplinary health maintenance organization located on campus. Now, 47 years later, Yale Health has more than 37,000 members including students, staff, faculty, and their families who come from every state in the country and almost every country in the world.
Our providers - physicians, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, physician assistants, and others - are board certified and committed to a team approach to health care. The fact that Yale Health is not-for-profit means that our patients come first and that we are continually looking at ways to update and improve our services. Yale Health has been continuously accredited by the Joint Commission since 2005 and is the proud recipient of Connecticut’s Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award for Innovation.
