Oncology

Pennsylvania Hospital Infusion Center

Challenge

With Outpatient Infusion services needing to expand, Penn Medicine acquired a second floor oncology practice in a historic Center City location near Pennsylvania Hospital, a Penn Medicine partner hospital.  Available space on the fifth floor allowed the practice to gut renovate and expand the practice by several infusion stations.

Solution

Relocating to the top floor of this MOB provided abundant natural light in which to design an open-concept infusion suite with views of the City’s skyline.  The upper floors also offer  additional square footage and the practice was able to expand by three infusion stations.  The USP 797-compliant pharmacy relocated to this new space and will accommodate all orders for both floors with dedicated positive and negative hood rooms. This will enhance medication preparation replacing the previous chemotherapy glove box. Renovations to the vacated second floor space began as soon as the practice moved to the fifth floor.

Result

The Infusion practice has sufficient space for their expected volume increase as well as an efficient, open floor plan with three nurse stations to provide compassionate treatment to their patients. An expanded Pharmacy, with two fume hoods, processes chemotherapy orders swiftly, positively affecting patient treatment time.
