Architects Selected for Precision Cancer Medicine Building
Design by Stantec Aims to Spur Collaboration, Integrate Research and Care 

We have selected international architecture firm Stantec Inc. to design our new, state-of-the-art Precision Cancer Medicine Building (PCMB) to integrate research and world-class patient care on the UCSF Mission Bay campus. Stantec, which was selected for its extensive experience designing academic medical- and cancer centers, joins California-based health care general contractor, Rudolph and Sletten, to form the design-build team for this new, adult outpatient cancer center scheduled to open in 2019. Rudolph and Sletten and Stantec will partner with faculty, staff, administrators and patients to incorporate major themes of patient-centered care, innovation and teaching, and operational efficiencies into the building design.

Located along 16th Street, adjacent and connected to the Ron Conway Family Gateway Medical Building, the new facility will consolidate the Mount Zion and Mission Bay solid tumor practices into one location. Bringing these practices together at Mission Bay, already a robust site for cancer research, will integrate research and clinical care and encourage collaboration between researchers and medical teams. In addition to clinic space for most cancers, PCMB will house chemotherapy infusion, radiology, pathology, radiation oncology, blood draw, a patient resource center, and support services.
