Winter 1985:

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2002 - Autumn


“Plans are finalized and construction will begin soon of an ambulatory care facility that will consolidate clinics and offices of the Faculty Practice Plan [precursor of the Yale Medical Group] which are currently scattered in 17 locations throughout the Medical Center. … The four-story glass, concrete and brick building will be located on the southeast corner of Howard and Davenport avenues. With adjacent parking and a pedestrian bridge to the hospital, the new facility will include specialty and consultative services, X-ray and laboratory services, and a pharmacy. It will not include hospital beds or one-day surgery facilities.

The Yale Faculty Practice Plan was established in 1981 to bring together administrative, management and billing and collection activities of the existing clinical practice of the full-time faculty. … The building [known today as the Yale Physician’s Building] of about 90,000 square feet will be constructed at an estimated cost of $9 million on land presently owned by the Hospital and used as part of a parking lot.”
