SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Mercy Medical Center will break ground on May 14 at the Sister Caritas Cancer Center, located in Springfield, Massachusetts, on a $15-million expansion and renovation designed by MorrisSwitzer~Environments for Health.
This project will increase efficiency by consolidating outpatient cancer care programs in one collaborative space and to improve the patient experience by increasing privacy and creating a calm, nurturing environment. The expansion to the existing radiation oncology treatment program will include a 12,500-square-foot medical oncology clinic with 12 exam rooms, as well as a 13,500-square-foot medical oncology treatment space with 32 infusion bays and two private infusion rooms. The infusion bays include privacy screening, personal televisions and space to accommodate a supporting family member or friend. The private infusion rooms are designed to comfort and support those who wish to be secluded during the infusion process.
The Mercy Cancer Center project is scheduled for completion in summer of 2015.
