Veterans Affairs Hematology/Oncology Cancer Treatment Center Renovation James H. Quillen VAMC
Mountain Home, Tennessee
This design-build, multi-phased project renovated existing space in Building 77 to efficiently incorporate hematology and oncology services in a patient-centered healing environment. The new space contains administrative/clerk areas, restrooms, clinical exam rooms, two infusion areas, chemo IV prep area, and other support office space. The goal of this renovation was to provide a space that is sensitive to the patient’s needs during this stressful time of treatment. Therefore, our design created a patient and family-friendly environment that reduces stress by offering an inviting setting that is calm and cheerful. We also worked to provide an atmosphere that is less institutional and creates spaces for differing levels of treatment; offering private, semi-private, and more communal treatment areas.
