MSK Nassau



This state-of-the art cancer treatment center utilized both residential- and hospitality-based design concepts. Public spaces were rooted in smaller residential-scale “rooms,” bringing a more comforting personal scale to care being provided. Interactions between patients and staff were to be done side by side or knee to knee in intimate spaces throughout the facility, reinforcing the personal side of the patient’s path to health. Each space reflects qualities of rooms found in homes, whether it be the library, game room, attic, den or backyard. To facilitate purposeful waiting, multiple seating styles and options are provided while facility-wide Wi-Fi and easy access to power ensure patients and families can continue their typical work-life routines throughout their treatment.

The facility features comprehensive adult oncology services, including surgical, medical and radiation oncology consultations; chemotherapy and radiation therapy; diagnostic radiology; access to clinical trials; and other specialized services such as genetic counseling, pain management support, lymphedema therapy, survivorship services, social work and nutrition counseling.
