Project Description


A two hospital health system serving a large geographic service area identified cancer center development as a strategic priority. ORC provided patient volume projections and assisted hospital clinical and administrative leadership with space programming for a new cancer center.

ORC consulting services included:

• ORC provided a cancer center concept and best practices presentation to senior leadership and fifty members of the hospital’s medical staff to introduce the concept of cancer center development.

• Financial proformas developed by ORC for facility and non-facility based medical oncology services.

• ORC assisted a local architectural team with space and program planning for a new freestanding 179,000 sq. ft. cancer center.

• In a 90 day period, ORC facilitated discussions with project architects and multidisciplinary working groups, determining programmatic needs and associated space requirements for the new cancer center.


The cancer center is operational.
