Lawrence + Memorial Hospital appoints new Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Tuesday, June 25, 2024

New London, CT (June 25, 2024) – Lawrence + Memorial Hospital (L+M) has appointed Sarah Cross, MD, as chair of Obstetrics & Gynecology. She is affiliated with the Yale School of Medicine where she is an associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences.

Dr. Cross specializes in maternal-fetal medicine, or high-risk pregnancies. She is especially interested in periviability, which is the cusp of neonatal viability – usually 22 to 23 weeks – and counseling patients who encounter issues at this stage of pregnancy. Much of what maternal-fetal medicine specialists do is deliver unexpected news. And while Dr. Cross says she can’t make bad news good, she hopes to make a challenging process less difficult for her patients. “Not only do I want my patients to understand the medical information I am giving them, but I want them to feel seen and heard,” she says.

Dr. Cross received her medical degree with honors from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and completed her residency and fellowship at Yale School of Medicine.
