The City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center in Duarte, California, is undergoing a transformative growth. The flagship campus of the NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center is recognized for its culture of hope and peaceful, garden-like campus, as much as it is for cutting edge research and prestigious cancer expertise. With the replacement of low-scale facilities with a large parking structure and high-rise outpatient building, City of Hope intends to maintain their peaceful and approachable patient experience. The northeast campus projects, including a newly expanded Hope Drive entry, a large Park, the Northeast Parking Structure and the Duarte Outpatient Clinic, create a cohesive environment that offers a variety of experiences, maximizes access to nature and views, and sparks moments of joy and delight- placing the patient experience hand-in-hand with quality care and treating the whole patient.
