DG2 Design teamed with Archimages and Stock Associates to develop the Siteman Cancer Center at Northwest HealthCare, located near Interstate 270 and Graham Road in Florissant. The Center opened in the Fall of 2020. The $26.3 million facility features state-of-the-art technology, expert care by Washington University physicians and a close affiliation with Christian Hospital, which owns and operates Northwest HealthCare.
“With this new facility, our commitment to being a lasting and contributing partner to Christian Hospital and the north county community grows even stronger,” said Timothy J. Eberlein, MD, Siteman director and the Spencer T. and Ann W. Olin Distinguished Professor at the School of Medicine. “Our goal remains a cancer-free future for our region. In the meantime, we will work to alleviate the burden of this disease by providing nationally recognized cancer care to patients in a comfortable and convenient setting.”
Besides being high-tech, the 37,800-square-foot facility was designed to be soothing and inviting. It features paintings by noted local artists Cbabi Bayoc and Jessica Hitchcock, and a healing garden. A community room is also available for use by citizen groups and nonprofit organizations.
The healing garden includes plants with a variety of seasonal interest for patients and staff to enjoy throughout the year, by looking out the windows or visiting the garden. It is semi-enclosed by a curving brick wall and pergola. A large tree was planted to anchor the end of the garden and provide shade and respite.
