with fritted-glass exterior walls that
appear to spiral gently inward toward the
accelerators anchoring its core, Kaiser
Permanente's Kraemer Radiation Oncology
Center (Anaheim, Calif.) makes it clear from
the first look that its approach to cancer care
aims to be different.
"Kaiser Permanente had a vision for a cancer treatment facility that was unlike others of
similar function, which for practical purposes
are most often in the basement, buried below
ground to shield the accelerators and contain
radiation," says Mehrdad Yazdani, director
of Yazdani Studio of CannonDesign (Los
Angeles). "By bringing a facility that's normally
below grade above grade, we are able to take
advantage of natural light and the relationship
with the landscape-two components that
greatly improve the patient experience."
The 2016 Healthcare Design Showcase
jury clearly appreciated the results of this effort, unanimously voting to bestow an Award
of Merit honor on the project. "This is very
innovative," one juror said. "It's a 'feel good'
cancer center with a nice clarity and simplicity
of design and planning."
The 16,000-square-foot building, which
opened in June 2015, grew out of extensive
research and simulations during the design
phase and throughout the project's completion, with several Lean analyses developed
to simulate flow. The design team explained
that its main goal toward managing operations was to make the building as simple as
possible, and plan it with patient flow front
and center.
The three main procedure spaces (the
linear accelerator, or LINAC, vaults) sit at the
heart of the structure, surrounded by the
support functions. A simplified circulation enhances operations by ensuring a "no waste"
flow of people and supplies. A garden was
sited at the end of every corridor in the building-but that's just the beginning in terms of
meeting the goal of "bringing nature in."
