Swedish Cancer Institute on June 5 will open its $11 million True Family Women's Cancer Center on the fifth and sixth floors of the Arnold Pavilion of its First Hill campus at 1221 Madison St.
The 23,600-square-foot center will consolidate most of Swedish Cancer Institute's services for treating women's cancers into one facility. It has 28 exam rooms, imaging services, procedure rooms, counseling and meeting spaces as well as an educational resource center.
The cancer center will act as a hub where women are guided through personalized and coordinated multidisciplinary treatments, including disease-specific education and holistic support. About 200 daily patient visits are anticipated.
Perkins+Will was the architect and Sellen Construction the general contractor. Other team members were CDi Engineers, mechanical engineer; Sparling, electrical and acoustical engineer; MacDonald Miller, mechanical and plumbing subcontractor; and Cochran Inc., electrical subcontractor.
Funding for the center came from donations, including $2 million from the families of Patricia True, Doug and Janet True, and Bill and Ruth True. Other contributors were Eve and Chap Alvord, Robin Knepper, the Norcliffe Foundation, Bruce and Jeannie Nordstrom, Seattle Radiology and Sellen Construction.
