Indiana University Simon Cancer Center hopes to put patients at ease
Fancy touches and posh chemotherapy clinics at the $150 million, 405,000-square-foot Indiana University Simon Cancer Center facility are expected to help draw cancer patients from across the state and the country. The hospital, which will begin accepting patients at the end of August, has 34 chemo treatment spaces and may expand to 60. Patients can opt for a private room with a bathroom, or they can sit in semi-private spaces and shield themselves from the next patient with sliding wood doors with opaque windows. Inpatient rooms come with similar personal touches in an effort to make patients and visitors feel comfortable.
