Yale-New Haven Hospital will open a Smilow Cancer Center branch in Old Saybrook in spring 2015.

YNHH has signed a 13-year lease on 633 Old Middlesex Turnpike, a 24,360-square-foot building that previously housed Lawrence and Memorial Hospital’s outpatient facilities. Yale-New Haven will also extend its specialty services to the branch, which will offer musculoskeletal, urological and oncological care.

“We are a logical geographic destination for YNHH to offer its superior outpatient medical care,” Old Saybrook’s First Selectman Carl Fortuna Jr. said in a press release. “YNHH’s world-class services will be of great benefit to our residents and the entire southeastern Connecticut community.”

Yale-New Haven will continue to work with Lawrence and Memorial to improve specialty care in Waverford and New London.

Lawrence and Memorial Hospital closed its offices at 633 Old Middlesex Turnpike in December 2012.
