Scripps Health Radiation Therapy Center
San Diego, California
New Construction, Outpatient
The Scripps Health Radiation Therapy Center needed to provide a welcoming and personalized experience for patients in a comprehensive cancer-care environment. Taylor was brought into the design process to complete conceptual design documents for a new 45,420-sf, two-story radiation facility. By opening the main entrance to the second floor with a grand stair and elevator and locating a healing garden on the second floor, the design offers a sense of welcome and peace. Clerestory windows and skylights bring light into the back of the building, while circulation from patient drop-off to the exam rooms and dressing rooms is clearly defined to minimize confusion in an already stressful situation. The design also features an education center off the main lobby.
