    Emergency medical services in Southington will move from the Hospital of Central Connecticut’s Bradley Memorial campus to a new facility on Queen Street, the Record-Journal reports.

    Hartford HealthCare, the hospital’s parent group, says it plans to design a “new, state-of-the-art, ambulatory care facility that will provide a freestanding, 24/7 emergency department” at the Queen Street location.

    The Record-Journal reports that the hospital will file for a certificate of need with the state and that the new facility will be located near the Knights Inn at 462 Queen Street.

    The hospital will continue to offer non-emergency services at either the Bradley Memorial campus on Meriden Avenue or the new ambulatory center, according to a spokesperson for Hartford HealthCare.

    “We are looking forward to working together with the community and our staff to build a bigger, better health care delivery system for the Town of Southington,” Hartford HealthCare said in a statement Tuesday, adding that the Bradley memorial campus will continue to operate throughout the transition.

    The Hospital of Central Connecticut comprises campuses in New Britain and Southington at what was once New Britain General Hospital and Bradley Memorial Hospital.
