From the moment a patient or family member arrives on-site, holistic design visual cues enable a sense of personal well-being while providing confidence in the level of care and leading edge technology housed inside the building. The design provides a balanced framework for delivery of very personal, high level patient care: High Tech and High Touch.
We are proud to feature one of the world’s most advanced technology centers for treating cancer. Inside this state-of-the-art facility, patients will receive radiation therapy with improved precision and shorter treatment times. Scripps Health is the second hospital in the country to install the TrueBeam STx accelerator.
