Parkview Cancer Center
Summa Health - Barberton Hospital
Hasenstab Architects provided architectural, engineering and interior design services for an $11.5 million cancer center at Summa Barberton Hospital. Parkview Center accommodates a radiation therapy unit, infusion center, medical oncology and a breast center.
After gaining approval to purchase land from the City of Barberton, Summa Barberton Hospital built the 25,400 square foot facility on the southwest corner of Tuscora Park, with an understanding that the building would blend in with its surroundings and remain as park-like and natural as possible.
The cancer center’s design was achieved after working closely with Summa Barberton Hospital and cancer center physicians. One consideration was promoting integration for maximum use of space in the facility. Cost efficient operations and comfortable accommodations are also key to the project’s design. The interior was designed to promote the professionalism of cancer center physicians and staff while also providing beautiful spaces intended to provide patients with comfort, a healing environment, respect and dignity.
Large windows provide patients with optimal views of the surrounding park. A healing garden is visible from various treatment rooms to aid in the relaxation and well being of patients. To bring nature inside, several large oak trees, which were saved from the building site, were used to make decorative beams and sculptures.
