A brand new cancer center is opening its doors in Waterford next week, and is the first Connecticut center to be affiliated with the Dana-Farber Community Cancer Center in Boston.
The Lawrence & Memorial Cancer Center, a division of New London's Lawrence & Memorial Hospital, will hold its grand opening next Wednesday, Sept. 18 from 4 to 7 p.m.
The 48,000-square-foot, two-story facility is located at 230 Waterford Parkway, and for the first time, will bring cancer care to the southeastern corner of the state.
“This is huge,” said Lawrence & Memorial Public Relations Director Michael O’Farrell.
O’Farrell said the first patient will be seen Oct. 1.
