The judges said: “It is a serious and reassuring building appropriate for high quality patient care. Inside it’s lovely: the interiors are clean and bright and rationally organised.”
Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Center was designed by William Rawn Associates and Stantec Architecture. The new seven-storey facility consolidates cancer treatment and administrative space under one roof. Its pioneering design pairs multi-disciplinary teams with multi-disciplinary disease programmes. It brings together distinct yet related departments into one building to create a multi-disciplinary approach to cancer care which also promotes a ‘patients first’ ethos.
Catherine Zeliotis, Healthcare Leader at Stantec and Clinical Design Lead for the project, says: “We worked hard with the client to provide a seamless, personalised experience for patients in a building bathed in light with an intuitive wayfinding system. It is exciting to see these efforts recognised by Building Better Healthcare—it spurs us on to further innovation in our future projects.”
We care about the communities we serve—because they’re our communities too. This allows us to assess what’s needed and connect our expertise, to appreciate nuances and envision what’s never been considered, to bring together diverse perspectives so we can collaborate toward a shared success. We’re designers, engineers, scientists, and project managers, innovating together at the intersection of community, creativity, and client relationships. Balancing these priorities results in projects that advance the quality of life in communities across the globe.
