A collaboration between UT Southwestern and the Moncrief Family, this cancer center combines clinical trial research and patient-centered care. The design empowers patients through customizable, patient-centered treatment options, an upbeat, comfortable interior and cutting edge research and technology. The building’s design empowers patients with two major room designs that offered several choices for receiving treatment. Half of the rooms were designed for patients who prefer a quiet, dark private treatment session and the other half of the rooms are narrow at the back and wide towards the front, opening up to the common room. These rooms create a social space for patients who prefer to receive treatment with their family, friends or fellow cancer patients. The Moncrief Cancer Institute engages patients with artwork, patient-friendly technology and amenities and an easy-to-navigate design.


We listen. We design. We collaborate.

Our spaces inform guests, direct the public, comfort patients, facilitate staff and doctors, and celebrate life.  Corgan partners with you and your team to define a truly appropriate and viable solution for your facility. Then, we measure every inch of space against the demands of the building's users; the elements that challenge it; and the land that it inhabits to achieve optimal functionality.

Modifying, expanding or developing new healthcare facilities requires an integrated and multi-tracked planning approach. From the equipment and regulations to the interior spaces and parking facilities, we understand the operational, clinical and financial objectives.
