A healthy half century

Fifty years ago today, the university launched the Yale Health Plan, a first-of-its-kind university HMO, in what the Yale Daily News called a “sophisticated and futuristic” new building at 17 Hillhouse. Today, Yale Health is still at it, only in a newer building on Lock Street.

    <> 1971 University Health Services UHS 1971 Westerman & Miller Assoc. Renovation 2009 by Charney Architects for the School of Engineering. HLH17. Hillhouse Ave. 17. <> Mid-Century Modern Brutalism clad in Indiana limestone to match Mason Lab, Leet-Oliver and Dunham lab nearby. In my opinion HLH17 has always looked more like an engineering lab than a clinic. <> The Department of University Health ["DUH"] had been based in what we now call Leigh Hall since 1930, but had no outpatient gynecology facilities [?!] Thus this dour building must have been a blessing (in disguise) to the hundreds of new undergraduate women that arrived in 1969.
