Seattle Cancer Care Alliance to Expand South Lake Union Campus with New 150,000-SF Outpatient Clinic

Seattle Cancer Care Alliance has begun construction on its South Lake Union campus (Seattle, Washington), to add a new six-story, 150,000-square-foot outpatient cancer treatment clinic. The largest-single construction project in SCCA history, the new building will feature a patient-centered design, highly specialized treatment clinics and procedure suites to expand and enhance SCCA’s services and advance its ability to deliver world-class cancer care and conduct cutting-edge research.

The new building will leverage the clinic design of SCCA’s recently opened Gastrointestinal Oncology Care Neighborhood, which features dedicated GI-related cancer care services on one floor of SCCA’s main South Lake Union campus. Each floor of the facility features flexible rooms, which makes it possible for 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.

When the clinic opens in early 2023, it will offer six care neighborhoods, which are units dedicated to treating specific cancers, with more than 60 flex rooms for patient care—and room to expand to a total of nine care neighborhoods. Dedicated care teams will be collocated in each of these areas for more effective coordination of care.

The building is also planned to have a new procedure suite with targeted capabilities, including interventional radiology services, a new magnetic resonance room and a satellite mammogram suite that utilizes both MR and traditional mammography—which is 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 and will include 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 the garage’s three stories with robotic lifts and platforms that shift cars vertically and horizontally. This garage will be the first of its kind in Puget Sound and the largest in the Pacific Northwest.

The project team includes GLY Construction, Inc. and ZGF Architects LLP.
