Trinity is please to announce that Frederick Regional Health System has broken ground on its new James M. Stockman Cancer Institute. The facility will provide the very latest in cancer care, with an emphasis on design features that encourage hope and healing.
The architects, Trinity (Columbus, OH) and Smithgroup JJR partnered to design the 62,000 square foot facility in Frederick, Maryland. The contractor is Gilbane Building Company. The project is expected to be completed summer 2017.
Based on the latest standards for optimal cancer care, the facility design unites medical and radiation oncology, surgical specialists and support services to operate under one roof, making it possible for care to be truly centered around the patient and their disease.
The imaging bays, which include Linear Accelerator and Cyber-knife vaults will be bright and airy, with natural-themed wall and ceiling panels. Treatment pods in the facility’s new Infusion Center will all have garden views and several private rooms are planned for those who prefer privacy.
The architects at Trinity/Smithgroup JJR, collaborated with care givers to optimize the delivery of cancer care and designed the building to be welcoming to both patients and providers, concentrating on design features that create an environment that addresses the mind, body and spirit.
After the ceremonial groundbreaking in March, work began on the new facility located on the FMH Rose Hill campus on Opossumtown Pike. By mid-summer, the foundation for the new cancer care facility will be poured.
This new facility will be “the community’s Cancer Institute” and will make it possible to provide community outreach and educational sessions. The James M. Stockman Cancer Institute will be located at FMH Rose Hill, with convenient access and adequate parking for our patients and their families.
