With the purchase of a vacant former corporate headquarters property adjacent to its flagship, 1,000+ bed medical campus, Inova established its new Center for Personalized Health. Completed in May 2019, the 465,000 SF Inova Schar Cancer Institute is the centerpiece of this new campus and serves as a consolidated hub for Inova’s clinical, technological, and research expertise.

To create an open, welcoming destination for state-of-the-art cancer care, the design team was challenged to totally transform the existing foreboding, high-security corporate facility. A new main entry pavilion creates a bright, airy first impression and addresses the existing building’s accessibility challenges.

The Schar Cancer Institute offers a full range of comprehensive cancer care, with 54 infusion therapy positions, 124 multidisciplinary clinic exam rooms, three linear accelerator vaults, and two proton therapy vaults.

Completion Date: 2019
