Cancer Center Opens in West Harrison
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the world’s largest and oldest private cancer center, has opened a new outpatient center in West Harrison, N.Y., for patients in the New York counties of Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Orange and Rockland as well as Fairfield County in Connecticut.
Architect EwingCole and contractor Hunter Roberts renovated an unoccupied commercial building to make way for the cancer center. The 102,000-sq-ft location, set on 8.2 acres of land, was completely redesigned and now features a new exterior wall, main entrance, roof and critical infrastructure upgrades. A 14,200-sq-ft, two-story addition was attached to the existing structure and contains a new visitor entrance, lobby and waiting area.
The property also has a 400-space parking area.
Construction of the cancer center was completed in September 2014, and it opened to patients the following month. The project has a sustainable design and achieved LEED Gold status.
