Print icon

Hartford HealthCare has opened its newest HealthCenter at 350 Liberty Street (Route 2) in Pawcatuck. The 24,000-square-foot building was developed with patients’ comfort and convenience in mind, offering easy access to primary care, pediatric and adolescent primary care, and rehabilitation services for patients in southeastern Connecticut and Western Rhode Island. 

The physicians in the building are:

● Amanda Conti, MD, offering primary care, pediatric and adolescent primary care, previously with an office in North Stonington.

● Hartmut Doerwaldt, MD, offering primary care, previously with an office in North Stonington.

● Kara Mignosa, PA-C, family medicine, accepting new patients, previously with an office in North Stonington.

● Edmund West, MD (arrives in September), internal medicine, accepting new patients, previously with Seaport Medical clinic, which closed in the spring of this year.

The rehabilitation services will include:

● Physical therapy

● Balance and falls

● Low back pain

● Work injury rehabilitation

● Sports medicine

● Musculoskeletal injuries

“The opening of our new health center in Pawcatuck exemplifies Hartford HealthCare’s deep commitment to bring more services into the communities we serve,” said Jeffrey Flaks, Hartford HealthCare President. “This specially-designed center, along with our Mystic facility which is well under way, will make it more convenient for shoreline residents from Rhode Island to Old Lyme to access a greater array of needed medical services.”

Town and business leaders welcomed both the development of the property — which had been vacant since 2003 — and the arrival of medical services to the area.

“How exciting to see the old Maple Breeze Park property being renovated into a state-of-the-art health care facility by Hartford HealthCare,” Stonington First Selectman Rob Simmons said, “and to know that what was a vacant lot for so many years will now be providing locally accessible healthcare to the Pawcatuck Village neighborhood.”

“This medical facility will not only be a valuable community asset by providing quality health care, it will serve as an attractive anchor facility that spurs commercial investments and economic development along that section of Route 2,” said Lisa Konicki, president of the Ocean Community Chamber of Commerce.

In 2018, Stonington’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved a plan by Old Lyme developer READCO to construct the two-story medical office building on the nine-acre Liberty Street site, formerly the home of the Maple Breeze amusement park. Construction began in September of last year.

 In May, Hartford HealthCare also began construction on a $24-million, 47-thousand square foot medical building off I-95 and Coogan Boulevard in the Mystic section of Stonington which will be home to a number of specialty services including neurology and cardiology along with full imaging services and primary care.
