Cancer Institute

  • 84,000 Square Feet
  • CM-at-Risk
  • $54M Project Value

As part of a $225 million commitment to build regional cancer centers, Allegheny Health Network’s (AHN) new 84,000-square-foot Cancer Institute serves as a hub for the North Side community of Pittsburgh.

The contemporary addition to Allegheny General Hospital provides a space for AHN to conduct cancer treatments and clinical trials. The faceted and curving glass façade conveys a sense of movement and energy that offsets the somber and serious feeling usually associated with advanced centers of healing.

The transition between the Cancer Institute and the hospital’s 1920s classical South Tower facade is enclosed within a bright, airy atrium. The entrance provides resources for patients, families, and the community as they enter the new facility. The design of this space allows for flexibility, including a multi-purpose room that can accommodate groups of up to 40, as well as a wellness center that offers a variety of services in consideration of health, wellness, and hope. For patients that are more ambulatory while receiving treatment, the patient community space creates a relaxing and nurturing atmosphere with full-height glass and views of the adjacent park.

The facility has 49 chemotherapy infusion bays, conference and examination rooms with telemedicine capabilities, a positive image salon, nutritional counseling, and financial counseling. State-of-the-art technology is integrated into the Cancer Institute including a Gamma Pod and an MRI-guided linear accelerator to enhance the hospital’s advanced care resources.
