From the outset, St. Jude looked to our patient families to help design a warm and welcoming atmosphere in the proton therapy center. Once a patient walks through the doors, a musical stairwell leads to the heart of the building. There, they are greeted with a rain forest-inspired waiting room filled with light. By design, our new center features three state-of-the-art treatment rooms, as well as preparation and recovery rooms for children who receive anesthesia.
From the moment patients arrive at St. Jude, they are welcomed by a dedicated team to not only treat their cancer, but to help guide them through the emotional and practical issues that arise during and after treatment. From expert radiation oncologists, nurses, social workers and child life specialists to survivorship and neurocognitive researchers, the team at St. Jude is committed to family- and patient-centered care.
