A comprehensive cancer center

Corgan led the master planning and design of the Northeast Texas Cancer and Research Institute, a partnership between CHRISTUS and Texas Oncology. The vision for this project blends the cancer care missions from both organizations to provide high‑quality, high‑touch, evidence‑based care focused on healing the whole person.

The new comprehensive cancer center is located on the  CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances hospital campus. The three‑story, Class A medical office building will house outpatient cancer treatment services for both CHRISTUS Health and Texas Oncology, working together in one shared space to improve patient outcomes. Clinical and sustainable features of the institute include chemotherapy infusion along the west side of the building with floor‑to-ceiling windows that overlook a tree-lined lawn, retail pharmacy and laboratory testing on the main level, and three linear accelerators along with on-site diagnostic imaging with MRI, PETCT, CT, and mammography. The center also offers a dedicated research area for clinical trials, resource areas for patient access cancer information, and a spiritual area for prayer or meditation. The roof utilizes high solar reflectance material, and the building envelope and roof have high insulation value. The center also utilizes glazing with low shading coefficient and low solar heat gain coefficient for greater thermal performance.

ELEVATING THE USER JOURNEY WITH EMPATHY AND INGENUITY

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.
