We have a brand new cancer center

I had to visit my cancer center today for a follow-up checkup. So far all is well and I am cleared to go to Maine to visit family.
Passed my Pet Scan
Passed my breast examine
Still need to see cardiologist but that should not be a problem
Also need to see Pulmonologist but things are improving there so shouldn't be a problem.

While I think the new cancer center is very nice I think that too much emphasis was placed on the entrance and reception areas with two little being done in the treatment areas. It is my believe that the treatment areas could have been expanded to keep up with the growing demands of breast cancer. The spaces are smaller then in the old building and they are very cramped and claustrophobic. They did provide for newer and more comfortable chairs. But not much space for family or friends who might accompany you to provide support while you are undergoing treatment.
Can't wait!

Looks nice and airy which is probably uplifting to those who come there for healing.

@joansmor getting excited but the work involved is wearing me out. Looking forward to no doctors or tests for the next few months.
April 10th, 2015

@skskunky looks ca be deceiving. Treatment rooms are not as inviting.
April 10th, 2015  
@seattlite I really am getting a whole lot better.
April 10th, 2015  
Glad everything is going right for you. Went I went with my Sister the place was always packed and busy, this looks empty. You have been in my thoughts Janice.

@ladymagpie they just opened it and believe it or not they did not send out notices that they had finally moved. I first went to the old place the parking lot was full but the doors locked. So I called them. Plus it was the end of the day. When I checked in there was a line waiting to chech in. This is only the Breast Cancer center. Radiation is across the hall. The breast cancer surgeons are also in these new offices.

I am in complete agreement with you. The entrance area doesn't have to be massive to be inviting, and the treatment rooms are what you go there for in the first place.

@aglennc exactly!
April 11th, 2015  
@janiskay Too bad they didn't talk to the "regulars" about what the new facility should have.
April 11th, 2015  
@olivetreeann hospitals are big business today they only care about the bottom line anymore.

@janiskay Yes- I know- I hear the same from a couple nurses that I know. Sad...
