The outpatient cancer treatment center spans nine stories, including one shelled infusion care floor, two shelled clinical floors and a four-story parking garage with 644 vehicle spots. It houses a 60-station infusion therapy unit, a pharmacy, a lab, linear accelerators and diagnostic imaging. With a focus on improving the patient experience, the center has family rooms where traveling patients and families can rest, as well as providing a calming view of the St. Johns River from the infusion clinic.
Integrated project delivery and Lean principles were applied to enhance collaboration among team members. Energy-efficient features include demand-control ventilation and a building automation system with direct digital controls. Water-cooled chillers and cooling towers provide 1,200 tons of cooling while heating is provided by two 3,000 MBH hot water boilers. The facility has a real-time location system that uses radio-frequency identification, ultrasound or infrared locating elements to easily track staff, patients and equipment.
