A comprehensive cancer care program is housed in this new three-story Phase II wing of the existing Sharon Morse Medical Office Building on The Villages Regional Hospital medical center campus. The campus can now offer diagnostics, cancer screening, medical and radiation oncologist offices and consultation, radiation oncology, infusion therapy, medical oncology, surgery, and inpatient care in an aesthetic setting at one location.
Designed for efficiencies for patients and staff, the cancer center promotes effective flow between the two treatment zones, allowing patients and families to access only the services needed without trafficking through other clinical areas. Staff and service corridors behind the patient/family circulation spaces connect the two zones. Moffitt Cancer Center shares the domed lobby with the medical office facility as a point of primary entry for easy wayfinding. A separate entry is available for ambulance arrivals and sick patients.
One unique feature is the Reflection Room, which is adjacent to the patient/family education and resource center and to the family waiting/check-in spaces, allowing private space for physicians and families to discuss a diagnosis, treatment options, and holistic support. It can also be utilized for family discussions, meditation, and reflection. Outside, a landscaped garden space gives infusion therapy patients a pleasing view of nature and natural light.
