The Hospital of Saint Raphael (HSR) and Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) have provided education and oversight to the emergency medical services (EMS) system in the South Central Connecticut region since its inception in the 1970’s. In 1989 they created New Haven Sponsor Hospital Program (NHSHP) to continue this mission as a joint venture due to some legislative changes.
YNHH purchased HSR with the acquisition taking effect on September 12, 2012 and continues to operate NHSHP as Yale-New Haven Sponsor Hospital Program (YNHSHP). YNHSHP currently provides medical oversight for Allingtown Fire District, American Medical Response (New Haven), Bethany Volunteer Fire Department Ambulance, Branford Fire Department, East Haven Fire Department, Guilford Fire Department, Hamden Fire Department, Madison Emergency Medical Services, Madison Hose Company No. 1, Madison Police Department, Nelson Ambulance Service, New Haven Fire Department, Yale New Haven Sponsor Hospital Area Response Physicians (SHARP) Team, North Branford Police Department, North Branford Volunteer Fire Department, North Haven Fire Department, North Madison Volunteer Fire Company, Orange Police Department, West Haven Fire Department Center District, West Shore Fire District, Woodbridge Police Department, Woodbridge Volunteer Fire Department, and Yale Student EMS as well as providing emergency medical training for EMS providers, 911 dispatchers, allied health professionals, and the community.
