New, expanded Infusion Center, Oncology and Hematology Clinics opening soonSeptember 2, 2016
Our growth at ANMC focuses on improving access to care for our people, while also enhancing the quality and experience of the care we provide. Our latest projects to expand the ANMC Infusion Center and Oncology and Hematology Clinic and will help achieve these goals through the addition of 20,000 square feet of new clinic space.
The fourth floor of the Healthy Communities Building (HCB) on the west side of the Alaska Native Health Campus is being remodeled for additional patient care space to meet the growing health needs of our people. The clinics will move from ANMC into the new space and create additional opportunities for expansion in the hospital. The clinics will open in their new location on the fourth floor in early October.
In addition to expanded clinical space, patients receiving infusion therapy can now sit and look out to a brilliant view of the Chugach range — the infusion bays will also have double-blinds which can provide a screened view or a blackout setting for resting. The lighting in each bay can be adjusted for patient comfort and the bays are designed to more comfortably accommodate an escort or family member who is caring for the patient.
The new Infusion Center provides a more patient-centered care environment, offering a variety of settings for patients to receive their treatment — private rooms, group rooms for activities while having treatment, and the more traditional semi-private patient space. The floor will also have a Healthy Meeting Room, which is a space for care group meetings, for family post-treatment moments and other patient education opportunities.
These Infusion Center and Oncology and Hematology Clinic will join the Internal Medicine, Podiatry and Pulmonology Clinics in the HCB, which moved in May 2016.
