August 1, 2018

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut community health center has received $10 million in state funds to build a recovery center.

The New Haven Register reports Cornell Scott-Hill Health Center CEO Michael Taylor was joined by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and Mayor Toni Harp Tuesday in New Haven to announce the project. According to officials, the center will replace the Grant Street Partnership program.

The new 44,000-square-foot facility will house 52 beds for men and women along with a kitchen. It will offer outpatient therapy, mental health and drug counseling, life skills workshops and primary care medical services.

Malloy says community health facilities like the Cornell Scott-Hill Center have helped improve the public health system. He says the new facility will help underserved communities.

Construction is expected to start in the spring.
