A Healing Environment

Receiving care in a soothing environment can help reduce anxiety and promote healing. Memorial Sloan Kettering Basking Ridge is located on 26 acres and reflects the latest in therapeutic design principles. To provide patients with a peaceful landscape, most of the site has been left wooded. Oversize windows throughout the center fill the space with daylight and offer views of nature. The color palette emphasizes calming, natural hues, and care has been taken to maintain quiet. Patients also have the ability to control the temperature in the area where they receive chemotherapy.

Privacy is a top priority — patients in gowns are not visible to other patients or visitors. In addition, medical equipment and devices are concealed from view to help minimize stress. These measures were adopted based on the suggestions of patients, their family members, and our clinical staff.
