Seeking to improve cure rates for its patients, Tianjin Cancer Hospital selected GS&P to provide architectural and interior design for China’s first individualized cancer treatment center to meet Joint Commission International standards for quality and patient safety.
 
Designed to facilitate individualized treatment, care and support to fit each patients’ unique needs, the hospital features radiotherapy and biotherapy technologies, capacity for up to 1,000 beds in shared and single-patient rooms, and a first-floor outpatient unit. The hospital’s 300 single-patient suites with private kitchens and bathrooms will cater to VIPs and international medical tourists.
 
GS&P’s design improves patient safety and quality in a number of ways, including clear and efficient circulation that separates inpatients, visitors, and clean and soiled materials. Each inpatient room has a view and ample exposure to natural light. Generous green spaces—including a medical street, a roof garden and skylight atrium—provide a comfortable and restorative setting for patients, family and staff. A warm color selection for interior finishes and furnishings also creates a healing environment.
 
The hospital’s aesthetics were inspired by the gentle curves and soft colors of Tianjin’s official flower, the China Rose, which symbolizes hope, crucial for cancer patients. The building’s design was influenced by the facility’s location in an airport zone, with streamlines on the building massing serving as an architectural metaphor for aircraft.
 
Part of a medical campus within a large mixed-use complex in the Tianjin Airport Economic Area, a sector of the Tianjin Free Trade Zone, the hospital features several restaurant options and a dramatic lobby befitting the entrance to the campus’ largest medical facility.
 
Improving the level of oncology care in northern China, the 768-bed, $500 million cancer hospital includes an emergency department, an outpatient department, diagnostic and treatment facilities, physical and functional exam rooms, an ICU, acute care, and administration, research and education facilities. The facility also comprises Moffitt International Center designed by GS&P. As a result of the project’s success, the client has commissioned GS&P to design an independent Proton Treatment Center as part of phase II of Tianjin Taishan Cancer Hospital.
