Focused on regeneration and reconnection to living systems, the two-story expansion extends on a radial grid from a central courtyard healing garden. Glazed skins and multiple points of access provide a continuous dialogue between interior and exterior, creating a visually open environment that reduces anxiety and stress for patients who deal with serious and chronic illness. The program includes exam/procedure rooms, physician offices and support staff workspace, patient/family consultation areas, a cancer resource library, state-of-the-art conference areas, an imaging center, a patient boutique, an infusion center, a healing garden, a meditation room and a children's play area. Effectiveness of care is the Hospital's top priority, which is supported by the ability of the design to accommodate multidisciplinary teams implementing interdisciplinary concepts. An efficient layout and a strong technology backbone, including a gamma knife, will contribute to the project's success.
