  • NORR completed the Outpatient Oncology & Infusion Center for RWJBarnabas Health located in Jersey City, New Jersey.

    RWJBarnabas Health (RWJBH) at Jersey City’s immediate goals included expanding outpatient cancer treatment services with a full service infusion center to serve the community in a convenient manner. NORR assisted in developing space programs to then identify suitable site options, ultimately resulting in a location that combines several tenant spaces in a nearby shopping center that provide blood draw and lab services, an on-site USP-800 pharmacy, medical oncology, and infusion. The chemotherapy area includes 8 semi-private infusion cubicles and 2 private infusion rooms that ring around 2 nurse stations and a nourishment cafe along the suites floor to ceiling storefront. Staff have immediate access to an on-site pharmacy, designed to prepare all of a patient’s hazardous and non-hazardous medications. Medical oncology is performed in 5 exam rooms, 1 of which is oversized to serve patients of size and allow for minor outpatient procedures. The clinical departments are supported with office space for patient services, a consult room, staff support spaces, a staff lounge, and a conference room.

    The planning of the suite ensures the best use of natural light that penetrates deep into the patient areas. The design incorporates light tones for a bright and airy feeling. Other components such as lighting, furniture selection and artwork result in an infusion suite with a hospitality feel.
