Throughout this project, the Corgan design team paid exceptional attention the special needs of patients experiencing cancer symptoms, from thoughtful planning and programming, soft lighting and a calming color palette to cleanable materials and prevention of dust throughout the unit. For patients and families that may spend weeks there, the new BMT Unit provides a comfortable healing environment with opportunities for outreach, such as the Cancer Resource Center, family waiting spaces and work areas that empower patients to deal with the challenges of cancer. The design also takes the needs of physicians and staff into account. The design modifies the nursing unit core to encourage communication, easy staff circulation and visibility. In a subsequent phase, the existing 13 BMT patient rooms will also be renovated to provide staff and patient the continuity of matching floors.
Life is precious.
To help people during the most stressful times of their lives is the most important job we can imagine. It’s why we do what we do. We are dedicated to improving health outcomes through better healthcare design. To us, that’s not just a job — it’s a calling.
The complex challenges of modern healthcare demand that places lean into the future. Design is the physical expression of intellectual rigor in the service of empathy. Every design decision must maximize performance, minimize risk, and enhance the experience of the caregiver, patient, and family. We are eager collaborators, who respect expertise and listen deeply to multiple viewpoints — there is no place for our own egos. We are driven to satisfy every client on their own terms. We are dedicated to finding new, better ways to promote healing, comfort, and hope.
Doing so, we have made an impact in the lives of over eight million patients. From major metropolitan AMCs to small suburban clinics, from obstetrics to hospice, Corgan creates elegant, forward-looking spaces that improve outcomes, deftly respond to periodic change, and elevate the experience of the user. Our people genuinely care about the lives of your people.
That, to us, is the most precious thing we can offer.
