Yale New Haven Health buys former Macy’s store at Meriden Mall; plans retail health center

Rendering The Yale New Haven Health System will repurpose the vacant former Macy’s store at the Meriden Mall into a retail health facility.

The Yale New Haven Health System has purchased the vacant former Macy’s store at the Meriden Mall and plans to repurpose the space as a retail health facility.

In a statement released Monday, healthcare real estate firm MedCraft said it helped facilitate the deal for the 179,285-square-foot property at 460 Lewis Ave. The company said it worked closely with the city and Namdar Realty Group, which owns the mall, to find the “optimal site” for Yale New Haven Health.

Financial details were not disclosed and the purchase price was not yet available in the city property or land records.

MedCraft officials said the former department store — located in the mall’s southern wing — is well-suited for its planned future use, citing its visibility, proximity to interstate highways and open layout, which can be configured and reconfigured based on the health system’s needs.

Macy’s shut down operations at the Meriden Mall in 2020. The retailer had maintained a presence in town for close to 50 years.

Yale New Haven Health is Connecticut’s largest health care system. Its network includes Yale New Haven Hospital, Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital, Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven, Bridgeport Hospital and Lawrence + Memorial Hospital, among other locations.
