Be Well, Get Well, and Stay Well - The Evolution of Cancer Care
Assistant Vice President, Facilities Development, Virtua Health

Historically, cancer treatment facilities were focused on “poisoning, burning and cutting” the body. Now, with the availability of personalized therapies, new technologies, integrative approaches and better outcomes the environment of care has shifted to less institutional and more community -based settings. Additionally, the flexibility to adapt to changing science has become increasingly important in positioning for the future.
Our panel has worked closely with clinicians, patients and survivors to reimagine the paradigm of cancer care. They will discuss what they learned and will explore the design response at several facilities which include Loyola Medicine in Chicago, IL, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI and Virtua’s new Samson Cancer Center in Moorestown, NJ.
