Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine are planning a nine-story, 659,000-sf medical facility on the Washington University Medical Campus. The new facility will be dedicated solely to outpatient cancer care.
The project will provide a central home for almost all aspects of advanced care for outpatients. The facility will have an innovative, patient-centered design that will allow patients to receive most of their care in one setting, with fewer visits to different locations on the Medical Campus. Teams of cancer specialists, social workers, psychologists and other support services will come to patients in the new center. An elevated pedestrian link will connect the facility to the rest of the Medical Campus.
Current plans call for the ambulatory care center to include 96 exam rooms, 88 infusion pods, radiology and breast imaging services, and hematology and chemistry laboratory space. Patients will have easy access to the parking garage within the same building and public transportation.
Lawrence Group and Perkins Eastman are designing the project. Clayco, in a joint venture with TW Constructors, will oversee construction. Ross & Baruzzini is providing engineering services for the project. The facility is expected to open in summer 2024.
