Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
Lauder Breast and MSKCC Imaging Center
Location: New York, NY
Size: 37,000 square feet
Project Type: Health Systems & Equipment Planning
Working with GE in its pre-FDA approval phase, JBA planned and designed a new Breast and Imaging Center in a new building designed by Perkins Eastman. Responsibilities included programming, planning and design development of imaging floors and other technical, ancillary and support spaces required to provide a complete and functional imaging center with 9 mammography suites, 3 ultrasound suites, 3 CT scan suites, 3 MRI suites, 1 stereotactic mammography suite, 1 PET CT suite, 1 radiology and bone densitometry suite. Early involvement enabled creative siting of the MR suite that ultimately reduced the shielding budget by $500,000 and minimized changes caused by updates of imaging equipment during construction.
