Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) was founded in 1826 as the first hospital in Connecticut and the fourth voluntary hospital in the nation, with 13 beds and an affiliation with the medical institution of Yale College, founded in 1810.

Founded as a charitable institution for the care of the poor, the role of the hospital soon expanded to include care for the entire community.
