Long Island firm completes new cancer center
Plainview-based EW Howell Construction Group was part of the team that recently completed work on a new cancer treatment center in Southampton.
EW Howell was retained by the Southampton Hospital Association to build The Phillips Family Cancer Center, a 13,800-square-foot, two-story building facility on County Road 39A.
Designed by Bridgehampton architect Blaze Makoid, the cancer center was inspired by the property’s former history as a farmer’s potato barn. The light, airy space will help patients connect with nature as part of the healing process. Victor Famulari, a specialist in healthcare facilities, designed the interior.
The center includes a radiation treatment area on the first floor and chemotherapy stations on the second level that overlook an organic year-round garden. A light-filled conference room converts into a screening room for live Skype medical conferencing with Stony Brook University’s Cancer Center.
“EW Howell was honored to be chosen by the Southampton Hospital Association for this important project,” Robert Timperio, vice president of EW Howell’s Healthcare Division, said in a company statement. “The primary design intention of this space is for it to feel open, light, airy and connected to nature; a place where cancer patients may feel more relaxed and comfortable while undergoing treatment.”
