The Valley Hospital – Gamma Knife Suite
- Size 1,984 sq.ft.
- Completion Date 2011
- Location Paramus, NJ
This project involved the renovations to 1,984 SF of existing hospital space to accommodate a new Gamma Knife medical treatment suite. The proprietary Gamma Knife system consists of several components that are electrically separated into an office side (Control Room) and a medical side (Treatment Room).
The Control Room consists of a control station with operator console, office cabinets, and treatment room monitors. Support spaces within the suite include a Reception Area, Patient Waiting Areas, a Soiled Utility Room, a Consultation Room, and Exam Rooms.
The Treatment Room consists of the radiation unit with a patient positioning system and medical cabinetry which contains the system controls and power units. This area was upgraded with a new steel frame structure to support the necessary lead shielding and shielded vault doors. The Gamma Knife Suite features dynamically colored lighting to create a visually stimulating, yet calming environment for patients.
