In October, the Levine Cancer Institute’s new headquarters opened on the campus of Carolinas HealthCare System’s Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, N.C.

According to an article in Healthcare Construction & Operations, the six-story building, composed of five stories that were added to an existing radiation oncology center, acts as the hub for communication, research and administration for the system’s cancer programs and centers. But the design also features “amenities that help enhance the quality of life for patients and families.”

In addition to the building’s 9 cancer clinics, an infusion center with more than 80 infusion chairs, teleconference space and a clinical trials unit, it notably also includes an art therapy room, a rooftop garden for meditation, a family resource center and a boutique where patients can shop for wigs and other items.
