To enhance the environment of patient care, a new garden was carved from the compact hospital campus to locate the Regional Cancer Center and Medical Office Building. The site design features a garden plaza, a trellis-inspired canopy, and a terraced orchard. At the Garden Level, the new facility offers expanded medical oncology/hematology services with an Open-Infusion area that overlooks the plaza, where alternating flowering and evergreen trees celebrate life and renewal each season. The interior color schemes were selected to establish a connection to the garden.

The Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Outpatient Service was also designed to take advantage of views to the plaza at the Garden Level. On the first floor, where physicians’ offices are located, curvilinear forms enhance patient privacy and are reminiscent of a garden pathway leading to the existing hospital.
