Greenwich Hospital rejected several site options for its expansion. Here’s why.

The Greenwich Hospital administration considered and then rejected several alternate sites for its proposed upgraded cancer facility, in part because of parking, its formal application spells out.
The hospital is seeking to build a 56,000-square-foot Smilow Cancer Center near the main hospital, which is raising concerns in the neighborhood. An earlier plan was voted down by the town’s Planning & Zoning Commission in 2021. The formal application also lays out a timetable should town approvals be granted. The hospital administration says site work could take place from the summer to the winter of 2023, including blasting and excavation for the underground garage. The construction work would take place in 2024, with the building frame mostly completed in that year. Interior work would be accomplished in 2025, with an expected completion time in summer 2025. The project needs a zoning change as well as a special permit from the town Planning and Zoning Commission, which has not yet scheduled a hearing on the project.
