Dacon was contracted to renovate and expand Gorton’s Specialty and Cancer Care Center at Addison Gilbert Hospital. The new 7,500 SF space is designed to meet the physical, emotional and social needs of patients who are undergoing cancer treatment and other cancer-related care. It offers a comfortable, private setting with plenty of room for visitors to offer support during treatments.
This expansion added more cancer care treatment chairs, exam rooms and office spaces. It also increased the number of Addison Gilbert’s ambulatory examination rooms, while adding a new patient and family waiting area. Dacon worked with representatives from administration, facilities planning, the Foundation, nursing and medical oncology to ensure that the new space met the needs of both patients and staff. The facility offers a local option to receive cutting-edge cancer treatment protocols in cooperation with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and other Boston hospitals.
