Project Description

Upstate Cancer Center
Syracuse, NY

EwingCole designed this 97,000 SF facility to serve as the new gateway to the SUNY Upstate Medical University Hospital. The building connects on two floors to the main hospital building, and is designed to connect via third floor skywalk to a future ambulatory care building across the street.  The primary design objective was to create a comforting and encouraging experience for patients at every moment in their visit.  The design takes advantage of the building’s location to create a three-story atrium that connects all major circulation routes, bringing daylight and sunlight indoors, and uses warm, natural materials and finishes throughout.  A large green roof with a four season garden provides a relaxing vista and an outdoor place of respite.
