Calgary Cancer Centre
The new Calgary Cancer Centre will centralize treatment and care for cancer patients in southern Alberta. This is the second largest cancer treatment and research facility in North America located on Alberta’s most prominent medical campus, Foothills Medical Centre, in a key urban location in Calgary.
- What if a building could give a hug?
Symbolizing the type of care a patient can expect to receive at the new Calgary Cancer Centre, the design features two curving L shaped forms that come together in an embrace that surrounds an all-season exterior garden as the “heart.” The heart will provide year-round access and views to nature for patients and their families as they receive care and treatment.
- Designing a bright future
The Calgary Cancer Centre will increase cancer care capacity in Southern Alberta by consolidating and expanding existing services to support integrated and comprehensive cancer care, including clinical and academic and research needs. It will deliver an interdisciplinary and integrated care philosophy which accommodates research, education and patient and family centered care.
- Integrated Care
The project is approximately 2 million sq ft, and the program is made up of inpatient units, outpatient clinics, radiotherapy treatment vaults, and medical research lab spaces.
- Minimizing Impact
The project is targeting LEED® Gold and is currently the largest design and construction project in Calgary.
