Yale New Haven (Conn.) Hospital's plans to build a neuroscience medical research and treatment facility received unanimous approval from the City Plan Commission on April 15, the New Haven Independent reports.
Three things to know:
1. Spanning 505,000-square-feet, the facility will feature a seven-story building above the McGivney Surgery Center, which specializes in joint replacement procedures, and another eight-story building nearby.
2. The neuroscience center will research diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and strokes.
3. Construction was initially slated for spring 2021, but the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the hospital to halt construction plans for now.
