Cancer center designed to improve patient experience

March 15, 2017

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.
