Miami Cancer Institute at Baptist Health South Florida
Certified LEED v2009 NC, 2017
ENR SE, Best Project Award of Merit (Healthcare), 2017
The Miami Cancer Institute combines advanced cancer treatment services and cancer research under one roof. It features South Florida’s first facility for proton therapy, an advanced form of radiation treatment that targets cancer cells while not attacking the surrounding normal tissue. The leading-edge institute also houses 87 infusion chemotherapy bays, three linear accelerators, a breast center and imaging services as well as two parking garages.
The new central energy plant and electrical utility vault provide 2,800 tons of chilled water and backup power to the facility. Energy-efficient features consist of a heat recovery chiller, high-performance glazing, energy recovery ventilators to pre-condition outside air and a low lighting power density, further reducing the cooling load.
