“We really try to make sure that they are able to talk and turn their chairs towards each other if they want to. There are some spaces that are a little bit more private if they want that as well. it’s just a very nice, open, and light atmosphere,” described Rachel Bishop, the cancer centers nurse manager.

With phase one now complete, phase two is beginning. Mayo Clinic hopes to have those wrapped up by the end of summer to start phase three, which has an expected completion by the end of this year, wrapping up the entire project.
