Swedish Issaquah Oncology Expansion

Enhancing Care, Improving Workflows, and Redefining Oncology Spaces

Project Location

Issaquah, WA

Project Type


The Swedish Cancer Institute — Issaquah needed to expand its oncology suite to accommodate a high patient load. The design for the space expanded the clinic with 16 new infusion chairs as well as a soothing waiting room and reception, flex space for therapeutic art and music programming, and a larger staff break room. Our approach was driven by the results of a thorough engagement process with stakeholders such as nurses, medical assistants, and providers.

This collaboration resulted in a space that connects seamlessly with existing oncology areas in the building and has a modernized feel, showcasing integration of interior design, embracing the facility finishes standards to create an elevated patient experience utilizing natural finishes, materials, and calming color choices. Administration areas for social workers and financial advocates provide private places for sensitive conversations. The design places providers’ offices and staff workspaces side by side, to improve collaboration and communications. The process-driven design resulted in an open, clean, and dynamic space for employees and patients.
