After 90 years of childbirth care with permission from the State Department of Public Health, obstetrical services were ceased along with the closure of the Family Childbirth Center. Maternity cases at Milford Hospital declined by 75 percent from 2010 to 2014, along with continued economic and regulatory challenges. The hospital is keeping its gynecological services.
In 2014, Yale New Haven Hospital formed a partnership with Milford Hospital to renovate and move one department inside the hospital. It is a 24-bed inpatient Rehabilitation and Wellness Center which also has a rehabilitation gym. Yale closed Bridgeport Hospital and Saint Raphael Hospital rehabilitation centers moving their services to the new rehabilitation center located inside Milford Hospital.
The new unit opened in July 2015 specializes in neurological and orthopedic services. The intent of the collaboration is to enhance access to care in a way that benefits both organizations while preserving the independence of Milford Hospital. The rehabilitation unit would increase traffic at the hospital, and provide a new source of revenue as the YNHH Rehabilitation Unit will be using many of the hospital's services from laboratory facilities, linen, food & nutritional service, and pharmacy departments. The mutual decision, at the time, was not intended to be a merger nor an acquisition.
In 2018, an announcement was made for the collaboration with Milford and Bridgeport Hospitals in which Milford Hospital would become part of the Yale New Haven Health System (YNHHS). The facility is now referred to as Bridgeport Hospital Milford Campus.
