Radiation oncology is one of the most extraordinary spaces in the new home of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.&nbsp; There is no routine cancer, and the new James is no routine cancer hospital. &ldquo;The mere fact that we&rsquo;re on the second floor of the new James speaks volumes about the uniqueness of our radiation oncology center,&rdquo; says Arnab Chakravarti, MD, chair of the department of radiation oncology at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center &ndash; James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC &ndash; James). &ldquo;Because radiation oncology vaults and equipment are so heavy, most radiation oncology departments are located in the basements of hospitals and medical centers.&rdquo; &ldquo;Our extensive experience dictates that cancer patients often feel depressed by the lack of sunlight,&rdquo; Chakravarti adds. &ldquo;In our new space, sunshine pours through the windows, and the bright cheerful ambiance creates a very therapeutic and healing environment for our cancer patients.&rdquo; Furthermore, cancer care and treatment in the new James is not a &ldquo;one-size-fits-all&rdquo; approach. &ldquo;There are no routine types of cancer,&rdquo; says Chakravarti. &ldquo;That&rsquo;s why it&rsquo;s so important to personalize care for the individual patient.&rdquo; At the OSUCCC &ndash; James, physicians work to treat the whole patient and not just the disease with multidisciplinary teams of radiation, medical and surgical oncologists, holding weekly meetings to discuss each patient&rsquo;s case in detail and tailor a treatment plan. &ldquo;That&rsquo;s one of the reasons why I think we deliver the best care in the world,&rdquo; Chakravarti says.
