Indiana University Cancer Hospital
This new Cancer Center was developed with the goal of becoming one of the nation’s top five centers for cancer research, diagnosis and treatment Center.
Steam and chilled water for the facility is provided from the district utility, which also serves the existing IU Hospital. Central air-handling units are located on the lower level and a sixth-level penthouse. Measures were taken to allow conversion of patient rooms to protective isolation rooms in the future. Radiant heating is provided in patient rooms and infusion areas for better environmental comfort of patients. Electrical service is provided by routing dual 15 kV feeds. Double-ended substations provide redundancy. An emergency generator will distribute emergency power throughout the new Center. Central uninterruptible power systems provide reliable power to information technology and other sensitive systems.
