Clifford Beers is Clinic is Coming to Hamden this Fall
Hamden is proud to announce that a Clifford Beers Clinic is expected to open in Hamden in late Summer or early Fall of 2017.
Clifford Beers clinics started over a century ago, when a man of the same name was institutionalized for a suicide attempt. Following his release, Clifford Beers did pioneering work in developing outpatient care- where patients could still live at home and receive two hours of treatment on a weekly basis. There are now more than twenty Clifford Beers clinics in the Greater New Haven area, working to give autistic children the community-based support they need.
“I would like to extend a hearty welcome to Clifford Beers Clinics as they begin preparations to open their facilities here in Hamden. This new location stands to create a number of new professional jobs here in Town, while also benefiting community members in need. I greatly look forward to the successful opening of CBC here in Hamden, and the many positive impacts this facility will have for our Town.”
The opening of the clinic is expected to generate between 10-30 jobs including CNA and administrative positions and will serve over 100 patients per day. The space the clinic will occupy is over 8,000 square feet and as the clinic expands, it would grow beyond 12,000 square feet. Clifford Beers Clinics will coordinate with the Hamden Keefe Center, the Hamden Board of Education, and members of the Hamden Regional Chamber of Commerce.
“We’re thrilled that a The Clifford Beers Autism Clinic will be opening here in the Town of Hamden,” said Economic Development and Neighborhood Revitalization Director Dale Kroop. “The people at Clifford Beers do an excellent job caring for their clients and the new jobs are always important. The collaboration between the Board of Education and our Community Service Programs will be invaluable to the Town of Hamden.”
