East Wing Radiation Oncology Center Addition
Project Type: Addition
Client: Marshfield Clinic
With the increasing prevalence of cancer cases in the country, Marshfield Clinic has been working to create regional cancer treatment locations, to ease the burden of travel on the patient.
LHB was approached to coordinate the design of the Marshfield, Wisconsin location of Marshfield Clinic’s Radiation Oncology treatment center. Partially located within the existing building’s footprint, existing column locations and property setbacks required creative solutions to the linear accelerator vault shielding and the department layout as a whole.
In addition to these creative solutions, LHB laid out the addition to provide daylight throughout the patient corridors and waiting areas. Where daylight wasn’t feasible, lighted images in the ceiling provide moments of respite for the patients undergoing treatment.
Seeing the success of the project, at the end of construction, LHB was also engaged by Marshfield Clinic to create a centralized Registration area which serves the entire floor, including the Radiation Oncology department.
