Stamford Health Announces Opening of Harbor Point Walk-In Center


STAMFORD, CT, July 1, 2024 – Today, Stamford Health announced the opening of the Harbor Point Walk-In Center, which will begin offering family medicine walk-in services immediately. The facility, located at 170 Washington Blvd. in the Harbor Point neighborhood of Stamford, is the health system’s fourth immediate care offering and second location in Harbor Point, following HSS Sports Rehab Harbor Point. Patients 14 and over will be able to access the facility on a walk-in basis from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day.

The new facility offers a variety of health care services for patients 14 and older including sick visits for general illness, cold, flu and COVID-19 symptoms, vaccinations to treat common conditions, treatment for minor aches and sprains, and more. The location will also offer services such as OB-GYN and other women’s health care services in the near future.

The Harbor Point Walk-In Center adds to the growing list of Stamford Health’s ambulatory locations across lower Fairfield County and will provide convenient care and services to the local community, including those who may be new to the area or who do not yet have a primary care physician.

Romulo Vasquez, MD, a primary care, family- and sports medicine-board-certified physician at Stamford Health, will lead the facility and serve as the primary caregiver. The center will also feature advanced practice providers and support staff. In addition to providing treatment on-site, Dr. Vasquez and his staff will help connect patients to other providers and specialists in the Stamford Health network for continued treatment.

“At Stamford Health, we take pride in delivering convenient access to care in the right setting,” said Rod Acosta, MD, Chief Physician Executive and President and CEO of Stamford Health Medical Group. “Our goal at Stamford Health is to provide top-of-the-line service to our community and expanding our presence in Harbor Point with walk-in appointment availability will allow us to care for and treat more members of the communities we serve.”

Stamford Health will host an open house on Tuesday, July 23 from 4:30 – 7pm, at which time members of the community can visit the facility and meet the location’s staff, including Dr. Vasquez.
