Cancer Centers   /  Nebraska Medicine, Village Pointe Cancer Center

This typical medical office building was repurposed into a state-of-the-art cancer center by Altus. The design had to work within previously-established structural constraints and circulation patterns to make additions and combining rare equipment in one room.

* Houses three Linear Accelerator Vaults
* One vault houses both a Linear Accelerator and CT scanner on rails
* A screen wall shields the LINAC’s ominous gantry, hiding it from view while providing caregivers quick access
* Other areas included diagnosis, exam, and infusion therapy, each with its own entrance to enhance patient privacy
* Special features include client-preferred private infusion rooms with adjacent open-air rooftop garden, private resource areas for patient’s families, and exterior healing garden
* The interior design team selected natural design elements and soft colors shift attention from medical equipment
