Cancer center designed to improve patient experience

March 15, 2017

The Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute in Cleveland, Ohio, was designed to reduce wait times and improve patient experience with natural light throughout the building, according to an article on the Fierce Healthcare website.

The $276 million, seven-story building was designed with feedback from former patients, who described what would make their experience as ideal, welcoming and healing as possible, the article said.

The infusion rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s also a skylight that allows natural light into the lower level, where patients receive radiation and imaging services.

To reduce wait times and improve patient flow, the facility was designed for efficiency. The lab was given more space and was positioned more conveniently on the first floor.
