In 2012, GMK provided architectural design and construction for the multi-million-dollar expansion and renovation of the existing Cancer Treatment Center to house the health system’s first CyberKnife® robotic surgery system. This CyberKnife® System – the world’s first and only robotic radiosurgery system – provides a non-surgical and pain-free alternative for treating surgically complicated or inoperable tumors. The 2,528-SF addition and 1,745-SF renovation has allowed the Health System to offer the southeastern area of North Carolina state-of-the-art cancer treatment on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Key elements of GMK’s design for the facility include architectural details that create a contemplative natural environment to promote patient relaxation and healing. The design further ties into and complements the existing facility while also focusing on heightened energy efficiency and meeting the facility's complex technical and safety requirements.
