Hartford HealthCare Proposes Health Center in Mystic

November 14, 2018

Hartford HealthCare has proposed a multi-million dollar health center off I-95 and Coogan Boulevard in Mystic that would provide a wide array of medical services including primary and specialty care.

If approved by the town, the three-story, 47,000-square-foot, facility would include:

  • Primary care
  • Cardiology
  • Imaging
  • Rehabilitation
  • Infusion services
  • Headache center
  • Movement disorders center
  • Other Neuroscience and specialty services.
  • Community education space.
  • Space for future offerings.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to provide shoreline residents more convenient access to world class, high quality health services,” said Jeffrey Flaks, Hartford HealthCare’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “This strategic investment in the community will improve access to needed services and aligns with our existing shoreline services from Rhode Island to Old Lyme.”

The state-of-the-art building was inspired by the heritage of the Mystic region, said property owner and developer David Lattizori. He said the health center is part of a larger project near Mystic’s major tourism destinations that includes an older adult community and housing for Electric Boat workers. He added that it is a great economic development opportunity for the town, adding funds to the tax rolls and employees who will frequent local businesses.

“The Health Center is designed to be the most state-of-the-art medical facility in southeastern Connecticut,” Lattizori said. “It evokes a timeless nautical fell while also taking advantage of 21st century building materials, which will communicate to patients and the community that this is a world-class medical facility…we believe it will be the premier medical destination along the Connecticut shoreline for first class medical care.”

The project’s site plan application will go before the town’s Zoning Board on Nov. 16, followed by a public hearing Nov. 20. If approved, the goal is to break ground in January.
