Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders

Challenge

As Nicklaus Children’s Hospital has evolved, what was once the prominent front door of the George E. Batchelor Research and Academic Pavilion has become obscured behind newer facilities and garages.

Solution

The concurrent growth of the Hospital’s outpatient cancer and blood disorders programs has provided the synchronistic opportunity to repurpose, reorient and expand the facility into a place of distinction along the campus’ main pedestrian plaza.

Result

With an architectural expression that will serve as a bridge between the colorful historic campus and the thoroughly modern facilities under construction, the new Center will be home to outpatient clinics and tomotherapy, clinical laboratories and infusion therapy.  These programs will be woven together with new, patient-friendly vertical circulation elements and will be capped with a sheltered roof garden serving as respite for infusion patients and their families.
