EMMC Lafayette Family Cancer Center Case Study
To address both the physical and emotional needs of cancer patients and their families, SMRT designed a comprehensive, healing environment at the Lafayette Family Cancer Center. The team incorporated evidence-based design principles in this outpatient facility featuring abundant natural light and scenic views. Embedded throughout are “erratics,” unexpected colors, shapes and patterns providing “positive distraction” and thus reducing the stress of living with cancer and on-going treatments. The Lafayette Family Cancer Center earned the “Best in Healthcare Design Award” from the International Interior Design Association, New England Chapter.
