Hartford Healthcare planning to add a dozen new medical facilities in Fairfield County

Hartford Healthcare is making a major push into southwestern Connecticut, adding a dozen new medical facilities in Fairfield County over the next 18 months, according to an executive with the company that will be handling the construction work. Rich Lee, managing director for Branford-based for O,R & L Commercial said most of the new medical facilities will be developed in former retail spaces across Fairfield County. Hartford Healthcare officials have not yet identified the specific locations. Hartford Healthcare’s rival in the Connecticut hospital marketplace, Yale New Haven Health System, is taking on a much larger retail-to-medical conversion at the Meriden Mall. Angela Mattie, a professor of management and medical sciences at Quinnipiac University, said bringing medical care closer to where people live “is a way of increasing the value of our health care system.”
