In creating Charlotte’s first MIBG therapy suite, the client sought to develop a care environment that promotes a more holistic approach to healing and well-being.
Little was able to alleviate the prolonged isolation MIGB patients experience due to the radioactive nature of treatment by converting two existing rooms into a unique therapy suite design; one that features a treatment room for the patient and a protected adjoining room for parents, caregivers and staff, with a lead-lined window between. The environment of the patient room is further enhanced through a specialized, fiber optic light system that mirrors a starry night with planets and shooting stars.
As part of the design process, our digital visualization team built a fully custom, all-inclusive Virtual Reality experience so that the client could experience the facility firsthand prior to completion.
