To create a patient-centered, non-clinical healing environment that aims to reduce the stresses of treatment on patients and families.
The new Cancer Treatment Center at St. Mary’s Hospital was designed around input from patients and staff. The extensive renovation prioritized areas with direct patient occupancy. It includes a warm, inviting reception area; awaiting room with a coffee bar, fireplace, large comfortable lounge chairs, and pendant light fixtures; a children’s corner; and separate areas to read, watch TV and play games. A spacious infusion area has views to the outside, room for family and friends, patient-controlled lighting, accessible outlets, writing surfaces and places to store personal belongings. The library includes audio books, informational journals, and computer access. Fashion boutique for wigs and other accessories and a spa-like wellness room for massage therapy completes the amenities.
