Bordering the southern edge of the Yale campus, is the Hill, which includes the Yale-New Haven Hospital and Yale University Medical School and hosts a number of patient care facilities, physician’s offices, medical laboratories and biotechnology companies.
Yale-New Haven Hospital, regularly ranked among the best in the country, is the second largest employer in New Haven. The 944-bed facility includes a Children’s Hospital and Psychiatric Hospital and a new comprehensive clinical cancer center is scheduled to open in 2009. While the Hospital is the primary teaching hospital of the Yale University Medical School and the Yale School of Nursing, it is a completely separate entity from Yale University.
The Hill also features an attractive waterfront area called City Point, which has a marina, views of the harbor and water view dining.
Single family homes, high-rise rental and condo buildings make up the majority of housing in this area. It is also a multi-generational area with several housing developments catering to seniors.
