New Jersey cancer center features green lobby

The John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey opened its new $130-million comprehensive care facility. The cancer center building will house 14 specialized divisions, including research and auxiliary oncology services, nutrition counseling, psychosocial support, and complementary therapies. The centerpiece of the lobby is a “living wall” with a 24-foot waterfall and more than 30 hydroponically grown plant species (above). The project was funded with $65 million raised by the Hackensack University Medical Center and with a $10 million donation from Helena Theurer, in memory of her husband John Theurer.
