UW Health | Carbone Cancer Center Rockford

Rockford, Illinois | LEED Silver

Eckenhoff Saunders programmed and designed this major outpatient cancer center in conjunction with UW Health and local architect-of-record Saavedra Gehlhausen Architects. The facility accommodates a full range of services, including radiation therapy and infusion treatment. It also houses physician offices, exam rooms, a retail pharmacy, imaging equipment, and two linear accelerators. There are many options for patient privacy, including private, semi-private, and open rooms.

Amenities include waiting areas with fireplaces, a café, and retail spaces. A patient resource and education center provides computers and internet access to facilitate research on medical conditions and resources for support. The 25-acre site features tranquil green spaces, healing gardens, and water elements. The rural character of the surrounding area inspires the architecture, materials, and finishes.
