New York Presbyterian Medical Center
Gamma Knife Suite
Location: New York, NY
Size: 2,600 square feet
Project Type: Equipment/Department Upgrade
The Gamma Knife, a stereotactic radio surgery system specific to the head and neck, began as an equipment upgrade project and expanded into the renovation of the Radiation Oncology Department at New York Presbyterian Hospital. The design features private patient bays with individual lighting and audio-visual controls to relax patients who spend the whole day at the medical center before they are interviewed, imaged and prepared for treatment. The ergonomic reception and control desk increase patient privacy while improving patient monitoring and enhancing the patient experience and the staff work process.
