WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- White Plains Hospital unveiled a new Infusion Center last week for patients needing chemotherapy and other infusion treatments.
The completely renovated 10,000-square-foot space, located on the third floor of the Dickstein Cancer Treatment Center, includes new finishes and furnishings and nine private infusion bays complete with individual television and temperature control, as well as Wi-Fi access. Many additional chemotherapy chairs in a communal space are also part of the new center.
“With the continued success of our cancer program in recent years, we have been faced with the challenge of running out of space,” said Una Hopkins, DNP, administrative director of the cancer program. “This new infusion center, and the entire expanded cancer center when it opens next year, will provide our patients with better access to the exceptional outpatient therapies we provide when and where they need them, in a comfortable and convenient location close to home.”
The new infusion center was initiated out of a need for more room due to the hospital’s growing patient volume in its award-winning cancer program. This is a preview of exciting things to come as more extensive renovations to the hospital’s Cancer Center are currently underway. In addition to the new Infusion Center, the hospital is in the process of renovating other areas of the Dickstein Cancer Treatment Center and constructing a new 40,000-square-foot building for physician office space and patient consultations that will connect to Dickstein. Posen Architects are responsible for the redesign of the Dickstein Cancer Treatment Center, including the new Infusion Center, and Posen Construction is handling the contracting work.
