UNC Adolescent/Young Adult (AYA) Infusion Center

MHAworks renovated the Adolescent/Young Adult (AYA) Oncology and Infusion Center for UNC Health. This infusion center provides outpatient treatments for adolescent and young adult oncology and benign hematology patients between the ages of 18-40. Patients will come to this infusion center to receive various treatments including chemotherapy and hydration and infusion of blood products.

When patients come to this infusion center, they may be spending up to eight hours receiving infusions at a time. One of the goals of this renovation was to design the space to bring the feelings of being outdoors or in a forest inside to create as comfortable of an experience for patients as possible. Since live plants and woven fabrics are not safe to use when designing this type of environment, the design team focused on using cleanable materials, graphic prints, and a color palette that reflects colors found in nature. Nature-inspired designs can be found all throughout the infusion center from the resin flower light fixtures above the nurses’ station to the forest scenes printed on window shades.
