The North Oncology team shared their excitement with a combined opinion: "The view is beautiful. The use of eco-friendly materials in building the Ambulatory Care Center, as well as the switch to computerized files rather than paper files, is a huge benefit. For both staff and patients, the close proximity of medical oncology, surgical oncology, diagnostic imaging and other cancer services is incredibly convenient. Patients and doctors can move between two floors rather than going to and from different buildings. Wait times are better for patients, and communications between the departments is much more convenient and efficient. The new location also enables greater levels of privacy to be given to patients."
Seth Dahlberg, MD, Cardiovascular Medicine
"The new facility is lovely. The patient rooms and staff areas are much more spacious, and it seems that patients really like the change. Having everything located in the same area has been a huge help, especially the support services."
Darleen Falke, Cancer Center Ambulatory Services
"The best thing about the Ambulatory Care Center is all of the benefits for the patients. There are more infusion chairs, as well as a lot more privacy. Being located right next to the parking garage is much more convenient. Having the cancer departments connected between two floors of the same building is much easier for patients and allows better organization for staff members. It is more convenient for patients to have a consistent location to come to for all of their visits."

"We absolutely love the new building! The view, the eco-friendly environments, the 'new car smell' ... This place is just magical. There was clearly so much hard work put into the whole building, and our manager has also put all of her time and effort into making this a success. There is truly nothing but positive things to say!"
Frances Lagana, DPM, Podiatry Clinic
"The patient rooms are much more spacious, which is particularly helpful when there are multiple family members accompanying the patient. The color scheme is very soothing and tranquil. Likewise, the ventilation system is much better, which is definitely a benefit to both staff and patients."
Cindi Beeman, Heart and Vascular Center of Excellence Ambulatory Services Representative
"The view is absolutely beautiful, as well as the building. The modern décor is definitely a plus, as well as the fresh, clean work environment. The effort put into the ACC really demonstrates to patients how much we value them and try to provide them with the best care possible."
