New Models in Cancer Care Facility Planning
Cancer care as a whole has moved toward a multidisciplinary care model where facilities are bringing all the services to patients, under one roof. That means facilities are tasked with designing spaces for a variety of services, including surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, infusion, and other support services. Today’s environments are also better supporting those efforts with improved layouts and operations that allow for multiple tenants, care teams, and support services. Healthcare Design covers the latest facility planning projects and discusses the challenges and solutions these design teams overcame to deliver world-class cancer care facilities. Find ideas and discussions about infection control, evidence-based design strategies, art programs for hospitals and outpatient cancer care facilities, and outdoor healing gardens.
Create Aesthetically Pleasing Outdoor Healing Environments
As more organizations adapt to meet rising demand for more integrated, one-stop outpatient services, they’re renovating or building new facilities that incorporate the latest technologies, offer choices to patients during their treatment experience, and feature outdoor healing gardens and places of respite for patients, their families, and staff members.
Healthcare Design’s cancer care projects highlight how the use of art programs, aesthetically pleasing materials and colors, views to nature, outdoor treatment spaces, courtyards, and healing gardens improve the patient experience. These ideas take healing to the next level.
