Cancer treatment center Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) (Seattle) has started construction on its South Lake Union (SLU) campus to add a new six-story, 150,000 square-foot outpatient cancer treatment clinic.

The clinic will offer six care neighborhoods, each dedicated to treating a specific cancer, and more than 60 flex rooms for patient care, with room to expand to nine care neighborhoods. Dedicated care teams will be collocated in each area for care coordination. Flexible patient room designs will enable patients to receive all medical oncology care, such as lab draws, nurse and provider visits, infusions, and supportive care visits in one room to improve efficiency and patient comfort.

The project also includes a state-of-the-art procedure suite with interventional radiology services, a new imaging (MRI)/MR) room, and a satellite mammogram suite for both MR and traditional mammography to help alleviate the need for patients to travel between buildings for various treatments and services.

A pedestrian bridge will connect the new and existing buildings. In addition, there will be a new three-level robotic parking garage for 180 cars. Patients will drop off their vehicle with a centralized valet who will transport the car to one of three levels with robotic lifts and platforms that shift cars vertically and horizontally.

The project team includes ZGF (architecture; Seattle).

The clinic is slated to open in early 2023.
