Healthcare Design at the New Lion's Den Cancer Institute
The Lion’s Den at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY
This colourful state-of-the-art, interactive playroom for children and teens is the brainchild a Hall-of-Fame hockey player, Pat LaFontaine, developed through his Companions in Courage Foundation.
The Lion’s Den is a special place for kids to connect with family, friends, teachers and celebrities using the latest video and game technology, including video games, video teleconferencing, internet-ready computers and flat screen TVs.
DuPont™ Corian® solid surface is used throughout the Lion's Den on panels, chairs and custom tables, helping contribute to a fun, comfortable, healthy environment thanks to its colour variety, smooth, virtually seamless appearance and the fact that it is a non-porous surface that doesn’t support the growth of bacteria, making it easy to clean and maintain. “I didn’t realise the versatility of Corian® solid surface,” said LaFontaine. “We’re extremely excited about the partnership with DuPont™ Corian® and what this Lion’s Den will mean to the kids and staff at Roswell.”
