Newington is a free standing urgent care facility housed with a large primary care service as well as selected medical/surgical specialty clinics with an annual workload of 6,000 patients/year; approximately 10% of patients are admitted to the VA at the main campus or to local community hospitals. Official hours of operation at Newington are 8:00 am to 4:30 pm and the facility is currently closed on weekends and federal holidays. The facility supports clinical education of medical students and residents from University of Connecticut. The West Haven campus is a level 1A facility and Primary Care/Specialty clinics with a 24/7 Emergency Department that receives ambulances form the surrounding community and has an annual census of approximately 14,000 visits and is a major academic affiliate of Yale University. Both units primarily serve a defined population of CT Veterans, approximately 55,000 with an Emergency Department caseload composed primarily of adult medicine/surgery and behavioral health urgencies with very few pediatrics and obstetric presentations.

The West Haven facility is a tertiary care facility classified as a Clinical Referral Level I Facility.
