Above. The nurses' station at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center's Surgical Day Hospital and Center for
Image-Guided Intervention, New York, designed by Jeffrey Berman Architect, has limited points of public access and
workstations in the rear that are meant to be private areas where staff can catch up on charting, paperwork, and other
quiet work. Photo: John Bartelstone Photography, courtesy Jeffrey Berman Architect.
Right. The Farber Center for Radiation Oncology, New York, features two high-energy Elekta linear accelerators and an
HDR + Brachytherapy Suite that required shielded vaults weighing several million pounds. Designed by Jeffrey Berman
Architect, the space features wood flooring with a high-tech cork underlayment that was designed like a sprung dance
or gym floor, for staff and patient comfort. Photo: John Bartelstone Photography, courtesy Jeffrey Berman Architect.
