Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) was founded in 1826 and is the fifth oldest hospital in the United States. Today, Yale-New Haven is a 944-bed tertiary referral center and the primary teaching hospital for the Yale University School of Medicine. The hospital is located on the main campus of Yale-New Haven Medical Center, which includes the Yale University School of Medicine, the Yale Cancer Center, the 201-bed Children’s Hospital and their administrative offices, and the 76-bed Yale-New Haven Psychiatric Hospital.
Yale-New Haven is listed among the nation’s top hospitals in the 2006 ranking of America’s Best Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. The hospital was also chosen by Working Mother magazine as one of the nation’s “100 Best Companies" for working mothers—one of only four Connecticut companies and the only hospital in Connecticut to receive this honor. Working Mother is the sixth national organization to recognize YNHH as an employer of choice in the past year.
The hospital’s exciting environment gives nurses an opportunity to experience an advanced clinical setting, including a Level I Trauma Center and a Level III newborn special care unit, and inpatient oncology and bone marrow transplant units. Yale-New Haven Hospital offers a teaching environment that encourages learning and professional growth, with strong collaboration between expert medical and nursing staffs. With more than 100 specialties from trauma to oncology, YNHH provides the opportunity, training and challenges that few other hospitals can offer.
