UConn President Susan Herbst and Dr. Frank Torti, UConn Health executive vice president for health affairs and medical school dean, led a celebration of UConn Health’s medical, dental, and urgent care services at Storrs Center Thursday.
“It’s been one of my goals for many years to plant the UConn Health flag in Storrs Center, near the University community,” Herbst said.
The UConn Health Storrs Center Medical and Dental Offices at 1 Royce Circle, Mansfield, consist of more than 20,000 square feet and have nearly 40 employees. The building opened in December, with the first services offered including primary care, occupational medicine, cardiology, orthopedics and sports medicine, general surgery, plastic surgery, x-ray, and a blood draw station. UConn Health Urgent Care opened in March. Dental offices are scheduled to open in mid-July, with dermatology and psychiatry to follow later this year.
“I am proud to say that we have assembled a team of world-class experts and highly accomplished physicians and providers for the greater Storrs community,” said Torti.
Mansfield Mayor Betsy Paterson noted that although Mansfield is a small town, thanks to the University it has sports, arts, culture, and now, more options for health care.
“The UConn Health offices are helping to meet the health care needs of eastern Connecticut,” added State Rep. Gregg Haddad (D-Mansfield).
