MKM partnered with St. Vincent Kokomo Hospital to complete a renovation to the Oncology Department. The completion of the project expands the hospital’s service line to offer increased care for patients in the surrounding communities.

The Oncology Department renovation updated the existing Oncology Suite to maximize cancer care growth within the facility. Nine infusion bays and several private exam rooms provide both inpatient and outpatient infusion, expanding the previous capacity by 175%. A new PET/CT was added to the department increasing patient access and care. New registration, waiting areas, and added support spaces improve staff efficiency, patient access, and flow throughout the department.

 

The renovation prioritizes patient privacy and comfort through unique interior design elements. Rebranding and wayfinding were implemented for a better patient experience. The renovated Oncology Department features semi-private infusion bays separated by graphic dividers featuring calming imagery of the outdoors. The bays feature TV monitors and specialty lighting controlled by the patient, allowing for personalization and comfort.
