New Hanover Regional Medical Center Zimmer Cancer Center

Wilmington, NC

The existing Zimmer Cancer Center was created in the early 1990s and occupies approximately 25,000 SF. To improve care to patients, a local oncology practice merged their services with the hospital-based comprehensive cancer center. The expansion and renovation accommodates the increased demand and provides efficiency for staff and comfort for patients and families.

This 51,100 SF project expands the existing chemo treatment area to include four private treatment rooms and 46 open treatment areas. Radiation Oncology has undergone a finishes upgrade in the same location. Additional renovations include adding a six exam- room pod to medical oncology, expanding the pharmacy and phlebotomy space, and providing associated support spaces. An addition to the building provides a new entrance and identity for the cancer center. The new lobby, registration function and patient inspiration area provide comfort and resources which were not provided in the existing center.
