Newly Renovated Integrative Medicine Center Reopens
MD Anderson's Integrative Medicine Center, formerly known as Place ... of wellness, has moved back to its renovated space and reopened on Floor 1 of the Main Building, near The Aquarium.
Before the renovation, the center had only three treatment rooms. Now, there are six treatment rooms built for versatility of the different treatment options. Each room has wood laminate floors and beds with wheels, making the rooms easy to rearrange to serve multiple purposes.
"I'm very excited with our newly renovated clinic," says Richard Lee, M.D., medical director of the Integrative Medicine Center. "We can now better meet the needs of patients in a way that enhances the care of every person we touch -- physically, mind-spiritually and socially."
The addition of a vital signs room allows the center's workflow to be streamlined, enhancing patient care and the center's efficiency. The renovation includes a workroom for faculty and clinical employees that features six new workstations, updated fixtures and new furniture.
"Before the renovation, we became very creative in the art of workspace sharing," says Andrea Warren, program manager, Integrative Medicine Center. "In a space big enough for one person, you would often find two or more. Now, we have room and resources for all of our staff."
