NC Cancer Hospital

Chapel Hill, NC

This new $200 million, 400,000 square foot facility focuses primarily on clinical programs, but also serves as a traditional research facility. Opened in late 2009, the facility includes expanded and enhanced multidisciplinary clinic space, specially designed facilities for high-technology tumor assessment imaging and treatment, a 50-bed inpatient unit and state-of-the-art infusion suite, enhanced amenities for patient treatment as well as patient and family support. Also included: teleconferencing facilities to connect UNC physicians and the state’s community-based physicians in patient treatment planning, a three-fold expansion of dedicated space specially designed for the growing number of pediatric cancer patients and a healing environment emphasizing natural light, indoor courtyards, gardens and public art. MHAworks, in a joint venture with ZGF of Seattle, designed this facility.
