The medical oncology unit, located on the building’s upper floor, includes clinic and treatment spaces overlooking Worcester’s historic, restored Union Station. The Center was designed with patient comfort in mind, incorporating bountifully day-lit suites and a healing garden, a calming venue that promotes rejuvenation and relaxation. The facility also features a boutique; counseling, support, and education areas; a conference center; and retail space.
A Healing Space
SMMA was selected to provide full architectural and interior design services for St. Vincent Hospital’s new Cancer and Wellness Center, located in City Square, in the heart of downtown Worcester.
By its nature, a project of this typology—where end users’ wellness and health inform the client’s design aspirations—affords us the very real opportunity to improve the lives of those who occupy, visit and need the space.
The three-story, 65,000-square-foot facility—a part of Worcester Medical Center, houses state-of-the-art technology for outpatient cancer care, including radiation therapy, medical oncology, chemotherapy, and cancer imaging. The Center’s Department of Radiation Oncology houses two linear accelerators, a CyberKnife, and a PET/CT scanner.
