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.


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.
