Maynard, MA – Campbell-McCabe Worldwide, LLC announced it recently assisted Tsoi Kobus Design on the new Cancer Institute and Proton Therapy Center for Order of Saint Francis (OSF) HealthCare at Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria, Ill. Construction on the 5-story, 190,000sf facility is underway and is located on the hospital’s main campus.
The $237 million project, which will provide interdisciplinary cancer treatment and telehealth services, includes one of only a few proton therapy systems in the country, manufactured by Varian Medical Systems. Proton therapy aims and stops radiation on its target with significantly less damage to surrounding tissues and vital organs than conventional radiation. The facility will also include a new patient garden, community rooms, and a new parking structure.
“Projects like this one for OSF Healthcare are some of the most technical of any that we work on, as they require adherence to strict codes and guidelines designed for patient comfort and safety,” said Susan McCabe Messier, DHT, principal and owner, Campbell-McCabe Worldwide, LLC. “Additionally, the intent of individual rooms and spaces are often altered or revised during the design process. Flexibility and understanding of the highly technical elements of the hardware, and the ability to adapt quickly, is vital in keeping a project of this scale on schedule.”
As part of the project, OSF HealthCare recently unveiled the Breakthrough Treatment Center, and construction on the Cancer Institute is expected to be completed in 2024.
“It’s an honor to contribute to this innovative facility focused on providing world-class care for its patients,” said McCabe Messier. “We’re grateful for our continued relationship with Glenn Pacheco and the Tsoi Kobus Design team, and the opportunity to work with them on this one-of-a-kind project.”
