A Case Study of the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre

Jul 01, 2003

The Windsor Regional Cancer Centre was constructed to meet the increasing volume demands for cancer treatment in Essex Country. The project reflects the client’s particular concern for patient-focused care and the design team’s interest in reinforcing the site context. The design is the result of an extensive discussion process involving users from each department in the centre, hospital maintenance personnel, and representatives from Cancer Care Ontario’s planning office. The project integrates all design disciplines, from lighting to landscape, to reinforce that vision and provide a building that responds to the patients’ and users’ needs.
