Making the unknown a
little more welcoming.
Patient-centered care that supports mind and body.
Comfort. Connection. Clarity.
The cancer treatment journey can feel isolating and uncertain. For these patients and their families, creating a warm, welcoming treatment environment—one that connects, comforts and clarifies—is paramount.
In our recent work with the Loyola Center for Cancer Care & Research, we used this belief as the starting place for design. In the process, we helped to re-imagine what healthcare should be: patient-centered, thoughtful and empathetic.
The new center prioritizes a holistic approach to patient care, creating a better treatment experience and subverting outdated hospital stereotypes. The calming, carefully-crafted environment welcomes. Reassures. And reflects the extraordinary natural beauty of its prairie wetlands environment.
We know the treatment journey is filled with unknowns. By crafting empathetic healing environments that support mental and emotional well-being alongside cutting-edge treatment, we’re working to advance a truly comprehensive approach to patient care—and helping to make the unknown a little more welcoming.
