The Outpatient Pavilion, a state-of-the-art medical facility, is set to open to the public—thanks in large part to the dedicated support of donors to UConn Health and Bioscience Connecticut.
The moving process is currently underway, with the Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center moving in the spring and other departments following suit by the summer.
“One of our missions is to take care of the citizens of the State of Connecticut,” said Dr. Denis Lafreniere, medical director of UConn Health‘s University Medical Group, in a NBC Connecticut segment (video above). “This building will allow us to do that in a fashion that is cutting-edge.”
The Outpatient Pavilion, a 300,000-square-foot building located on the Farmington campus of UConn Health, houses both primary care and specialists. It features eight open-concept floors, light-filled lobbies furnished with device charging stations, and a secure, real-time communication system for health care providers and their patients.
The Pavilion will go a long way toward UConn Health’s commitment to accessible, personalized patient care. “We’re very excited,” added Lafreniere in an interview with WTIC Radio. “We’ll have a patient come in, see their primary care doc, see their specialist on the same day, perhaps…so they won’t need separate appointments. It’ll be very convenient for patient care.”
