TriHealth Bethesda North

Comprehensive Care Center

Project Overview

HEAPY provided MEP and technology engineering design services for the new, four-story Harold M. & Eugenia S. Thomas Comprehensive Care Center. The center serves as a one-stop destination for the most advanced cancer care services available to heal the whole person – physically, mentally, and spiritually.

This $85,000,000 center features traditional radiation, surgical and medical oncology treatment services together with the full range of new and innovative specialized outpatient cancer therapies, such as precision medicine, along with access to cutting-edge research, clinical trials, and investigational treatment protocols.

Patient Experience

Patients will consistently experience the highest quality treatment for all types of cancer, provided in a trusted, compassionate environment that fosters healing, hope and new beginnings – all without having to leave the area or travel to multiple facilities.

As importantly, patients and their families have access to a variety of holistic and supportive human services, including nutrition, genetic counseling, cancer survivorship programs, care navigation and a range of social services to help them on a personal level through their cancer journey.

The nutrition program features a teaching kitchen designed to mimic the look and feel of cooking at home. The kitchen is in an atrium space with very tall ceilings, but the client did not want exposed duct work, so we worked with local code and fire officials to install a freestanding induction, ductless, downdraft vent unit. This unit is fully mobile, allowing for flexible and adaptable use within the teaching kitchen space.

Building Features

The building features a central, open, airy atrium. The interior design uses light, earthy tones and biophilia to bring the natural environment inside the facility, leveraging the healing properties of nature for patients and caregivers.
