Johns Hopkins Proton Therapy Center Complete, Delivering Care to Cancer Patients

The Johns Hopkins Proton Therapy Center is complete and delivering care to cancer patients in Washington, D..C and the broader Mid-Atlantic region. Stantec led the architectural and interior designs of the 80,000-square-foot facility with three gantries for patient treatment and one fixed beam room dedicated to research, while Brasfield & Gorrie served as general contractor. The center provides proton therapy treatment to adult and pediatric cancer patients.

Located on the Sibley Memorial Hospital campus, directly west of the new Sibley Tower, the facility is connected to the oncology wing and is part of a large renovation and expansion program to create a comprehensive cancer treatment center. It is LEED certified, which is a unique designation for proton therapy centers.

Blending seamlessly into the campus master plan, the facility takes its cues from the predominant campus architectural features, incorporating the use of brick, cast stone trim and glass with a wall of windows that flood the second-floor patient area with natural light. Interiors feature warm, soft colors and natural materials to create an environment that feels safe and friendly, mimicking a living room rather than a waiting room.
