Center for Total Cancer Care

Cancer Care Associates is a new freestanding medical oncology center that serves more than 15,000 infusion therapy patients a year. Architects were asked to design a facility that supported patients and their families in a quiet, healing environment. Warm colors, well appointed lighting, and natural elements of stone and wood were combined to create an inviting atmosphere. Each infusion area has a unique theme, wireless access, digital entertainment, and music. Patients also may choose to retreat to a spa-like area that contains an interior waterfall.

Office space and exam rooms are located on the second floor clinical area. Eight physician modules are available where doctors meet with patients and their families. It also contains individual physician stations and sub waiting areas.

This facility supports a state-of-the-art laboratory with seven private phlebotomy stations providing patients with the convenience of having the necessary blood work done at the facility. A USP 797 Pharmaceutical Compounding lab also provides on-site mixing and pharmacy support. This pharmacy is equipped with two mixing hoods, clean room, barrier isolators, and support features for high-risk compounding.

The facility’s pharmacy is equipped with two mixing hoods, a clean room, barrier isolators, and support features for high-risk compounding. The center also contains a unique, Proton Emission Tomography (PET) imaging center. PET imaging allows a physician to see three-dimensional images of organs—an essential tool when diagnosing and battling cancer.
