£160M Cancer Centre Now Open At Guy's Hospital
Guy’s Cancer, one of the UK’s leading providers of treatment for people battling cancer, opened a state-of-the-art Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital.
The new Cancer Centre brings most treatments offered by the trust under one roof. Previously they were delivered in 13 locations across eight different buildings on the St. Thomas’ and Guy’s sites.
Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and specialist healthcare architect Stantec built the 14-storey building based on recommendations—including how to create an uplifting atmosphere—from many of the 6,500 patients that Guy’s Cancer is treating. One of the suggestions resulted in Europe’s first cancer treatment to offer radiotherapy treatment above ground level after patients said this would make a huge difference to them.
