Something very big is happening in Waterford this week that promises to change the landscape of cancer care in the region. On Wednesday, September 18, the new Lawrence + Memorial Cancer Center, in affiliation with Dana-Farber Community Cancer Care, will open its doors for the first time.
Designed by TRO JB architects and built by Suffolk Construction, the hospital says the 48,000-square-foot, two story facility has been innovative since its earliest stages of design. The building incorporates input and feedback from clinical staff, patient advisors and cancer survivors.
Lawrence + Memorial is the first Connecticut hospital to be affiliated with the Boston-based Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, which is internationally renowned for blending both research and clinical excellence with up to 700 ongoing clinical trials at any one time.
Representatives from L+M, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Yale, Suffolk Construction and TRO JB architects will be at the new medical facility, located at 230 Waterford Parkway South in Waterford, on Wednesday for the grand opening.
