Q. Where can I find it in real life?

    A. These scenes were shot at Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford, at 170 Governors Avenue ( at Lawrence Road ), in Medford, Massachusetts.

    It is one of the few Dexter locations that is close to Boston, just seven miles northeast of that capitol city. However, that puts it almost 100 miles east of Shelburne Falls, where most of the Iron Lake scenes were filmed.

The photos of the hospital below were shot by Ron B.:





    Apparently, the hospital had some unused units that were awaiting renovation, and that was just what the production was looking for.

    They filmed mostly inside, but did shoot a brief scene at the hospital's main entrance, where Harrison arrives.

    They even added fake snow  although it was the month of May when they filmed, something that had become routine for this new production of Dexter, since all of the events In the script take place during the Christmas season.


      Here is a Google map of the hospital :



Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?

    A. The local Massachusetts media did a great job of covering the Dexter: New Blood production as it unfolded in the first half of 2021.

    In this case, The Medford Transcript and the WickedLocal.com reported back in early May that Dexter had been filming at Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

    Then, Ron B., my friend in Massachusetts,  drove out  to Medford and shot the photos of the hospital that you see above.
