Griffin Hospital
The Center for Cancer care
Location: Derby, CT
Project Completed: 2008
Size: 49,000 SF (new) 22,000 SF (reno)

This project consists of a 49,000-SF Ambulatory Services building and Cancer Center and renovations to existing Hospital Emergency Department and Clinical Laboratory. The culture of the facility, it’s “theme”, is established by the philosophical context of Planetree. The essential components of that philosophy serve as the guideposts for the evolution of the design and inform all aspects of its ultimate image, brand and identity.

The facility will support the delivery of coordinated care (combined modality – radiation and medical oncology) through spatial relationships that generate opportunities for spontaneous as well as scheduled interaction. The project included a new 6,600-SF clinical lab facility built in vacated space while the existing lab remained in operation. An early phase included a small satellite lab and phlebotomy area next to the new surgery entrance to serve surgery needs for specimen analysis. The new clinical lab was designed to meet an expanding volume and laboratory needs with flexibility that will allow the laboratory to be adaptable to future changes in technology and processes.
