Construction of the new Hartford HealthCare HealthCenter at 280 South Main Street in Cheshire is nearing completion, with a scheduled opening in mid-September. The walls are freshly painted, the shrubs are freshly planted and the parking lot is ready for cars. While information technology specialists work to tie everything together, workers are putting the finishing touches on furniture, fixtures, and equipment.

The first floor of the 50,000-square-foot facility is expected to open for patients in mid-September, including space for the Hartford HealthCare Ayer Neuroscience Institute’s David and Rhoda Chase Family Movement Disorders Center, the Ayer Neuroscience Institute’s Headache Center, Hartford HealthCare Rehabilitation Network, a wellness center, acupuncture rooms and conference rooms.

The second floor is scheduled to open to patients later in the fall, featuring primary care, dermatology, cardiology, and clinical space for more than 20 specialties. Imaging services with the most advanced equipment will be available on the lower level of the building.

“This new facility will feature the most healthcare services under one roof in the town of Cheshire,” said Gary Havican, senior vice president of Hartford HealthCare, and president of MidState Medical Center and The Hospital of Central Connecticut. “We are eager to welcome the community into our building and provide them with the services they need, close to home.”
