Our new facility was designed to ensure that you and your family will have the best environment in which to receive your care. Features of the building that will enhance your time with us include:
Ease of Access
The Cancer Center has its own entrance with drive up and drop off points. Valet parking is also available. Patients undergoing daily Radiation therapy have a dedicated and convenient parking area.
The three-story atrium will be a point of reference for patients and visitors. All patient services and support services are easily accessible to the atrium. An Information desk, staffed with Ambassadors, will assist with directing patients and visitors to their destination.
The Frank and Cricket Luellen Patient and Family Resource Center
Conveniently located on the connecting link to the Strong Memorial Hospital main lobby. It is a magnificent room that will house the Alan Hermenet Book collection, along with internet access and access to community agencies who will have office space. This room, designed to be a source for patient and family education and support, will be the site for classes and support groups.
We have a beautiful meditation or “quiet” room available for our patients and families, which features a beautiful back-lighted stained glass installation. This non-denominational room is designed for prayer, reflection, or contemplation.
Located in Strong’s main lobby area, it offers wigs, scarves, hats, and other items that may be helpful to our patients. Visit our dedicated website.
Our treatment areas have been designed to ensure that patients have the choice for privacy during their treatment. We have new and improved changing rooms and gowned waiting in the Radiation Oncology treatment area. Each infusion chair will have its own television.
The entire building is wireless. Patients and visitors can access their laptops or PDA from any area.
Through the efforts of our volunteer Art committee, we will have lovely pieces of art located throughout the building, adding to its intent of bringing comfort and peace.
Our most important design feature has been the creative use of light and glass throughout the facility—from our signature atrium to our windows in the Infusion Center. We believe that light inspires energy and hope to all who enter.
