Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic said Tuesday it will shut down Mayo Medical Laboratories New England in Andover, Mass., the site of its East Coast lab operations, according tothe Post-Bulletin.

Mayo Clinic will close the Andover lab at the end of 2016 upon the end of the facility's lease, according to the report.

The lab's 105 employees were informed of the closure Tuesday morning. They will be invited to move to Minnesota and work at Mayo Clinic's headquarters or take a severance package.

"It is our hope that the vast majority of staff at our New England facility will be interested in open positions at other Mayo locations," Mayo Clinic spokeswoman Gina Chiri-Osmond said, according to the Post-Bulletin. "There are positions available for all employees who hope to continue their careers at Mayo. Mayo Clinic is committed to doing everything possible to retain current employees during this time of change and to providing support throughout this process."
