Bringing together patient treatment programs into one centralized location, the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Center helps improve the patient experience and increase interaction among caregivers. Located on the Cleveland Clinic’s 168 acre main campus along the East Crile Mall, the project reinforces the Cleveland Clinic Masterplan’s green spine. The multidisciplinary Taussig Cancer Center includes 126 exam rooms, 98 infusion bays, six linear accelerators, seven procedure rooms, and a Gamma Knife room. The prominent cantilevered glass façade and extensive use of glass on the north and south facades fills the building with daylight – in patient corridors, in all infusion rooms, at care stations, and in team workrooms.

The design supports the Cleveland Clinic’s vision to bring the entire cancer team under one roof and “act as a unit.” An intensive programming effort brings the various caregivers together at team rooms, break rooms, and care stations. The design fosters knowledge sharing and comradery among the medical professionals and staff and supports holistic patient care. Infusion and exam rooms (levels 2-4) are located on the same floor minimizing travel distances. Doctors’ offices and a conference center are located on levels 5 and 6, allowing staff to remain in the building throughout the day.
