Erie VA Oncology Department

Allen + Shariff provided engineering services for an un-utilized shell space on the third floor of the Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospital. The space was turned into a 2,150 square foot oncology clinic.

The project consisted of radiant panels placed above patient chairs to provide greater thermal comfort during treatment. Additionally, VAV’s were located throughout the space based on use and exposure. An exhaust fan was added to the project to provide exhaust air to balance out the outdoor air requirements of the space. Sinks, water closets, clinical sinks, and ice machines were added per VA standards. Oxygen outlets were requested at each patient area. The existing medical gas zone valve box was replaced, and oxygen was run to these locations. A new area alarm panel was provided at the nurse station. Fire protection was also designed throughout the space. The existing nurse call system was expanded to the space, with a new master call station at the nurse station. Lighting consisted of dimmable 2x2s, downlights, and decorative recessed cove fixtures. Cable TV was provided to each oncology chair for patient use.
