Construction of $70M cutting-edge, first in CT, proton therapy cancer facility to begin in spring

Construction of a cutting-edge cancer center in Connecticut is scheduled to begin this spring at 932 Northrop Road in Wallingford, town officials say. Joe Mirra, the town’s Economic Development Commission chairman, said Tuesday that representatives of Hartford Healthcare and Yale New Haven Health System have told him construction of the 25,000 square foot Connecticut Proton Therapy Center should start in March or April. The two healthcare organizations, which are among Connecticut’s largest, are developing the facility as part of a joint venture. The state Office of Health Strategy approved the joint application for the center in 2022. Costs are estimated at $70 million for the facility, which will be the first of its kind in the state. Mirra said with the addition of the Proton Therapy Center in Wallingford, “I can foresee the town and surrounding communities becoming a significant medical hub.” And surrounding businesses will really benefit from the increased activity in town.
