City of Hope

Hope Plaza

Duarte, CA

City of Hope is an internationally renowned biomedical research institute and treatment center dedicated to continued advances in the treatment and research of cancer, diabetes, and other life-threatening diseases. The Comprehensive Cancer Center is undergoing transformative growth. EwingCole and our partners at CO Architects planned the nine-story tower as a comprehensive one-stop shop for cancer care and research, complete with a dining facility, on-site pharmacy, and compounding facilities, on-site large-scale laboratories for specimen testing, state-of-the-art radiology and radiation oncology equipment, and a range of clinical services dedicated to cancer care. Low-scale facilities are replaced with a high-rise outpatient building with the aim of maintaining City of Hope’s peaceful and approachable patient experience. The northeast campus projects, including the 350,000 SF Duarte Outpatient Center, create a cohesive environment that offers a variety of experiences. With a warm palette of wood and stone textures, the interior is designed with a spa and wellness theme in mind, and daylighting is prioritized for infusion treatment spaces to enhance healing with spectacular views of the San Gabriel Mountains.
