The Innovative Cancer Institute (ICI) in South Miami serves patients from across South Florida and the world. In need of a new facility to accommodate growing demand and incorporate the latest technologies, ICI commissioned GS&P to design a brand new, state-of-the-art building. The four-story radiation cancer treatment facility offers a comfortable, quiet and aesthetically pleasing layout in a visually stunning package.
 
The approximately 60,000-square-foot building includes a clinical area, offices, open-air parking garage with 80 spaces, lush garden views, and some of the most sophisticated cancer treatment planning and delivery equipment in the world. ICI is the first free-standing cancer treatment center in the U.S. to offer the Varian Edge™ radiosurgery system, which quickly and easily targets tumors with pinpoint accuracy while protecting the surrounding healthy tissue. Other treatment options available include brachytherapy, conformal therapy, IMRT, IGRT, and RapidArc™; as well as a dedicated 64-slice wide-bore state-of-the-art Siemens CT scanner for radiation treatment planning.
 
The building itself uses sleek and modern features to reflect the advanced services being offered and complement the emerging South Miami neighborhood. Aluminum cladding, decorative metal screens, translucent glazing, clear glass, and a smooth-textured white stucco finish give the exterior an interesting and progressive style. An art collection, waiting-area landscaping, and views of lush gardens work with the neutral, contemporary aesthetic to provide a calming space that alleviates anxiety.
 
The Innovative Cancer Institute’s modern new home provides a perfect setting for this world-renowned team to provide cutting-edge care to local, domestic and international cancer patients.

"GS&P has created an inspired, modern facility that helps us embrace the most advanced, sophisticated technology."
