Focused on improving the cancer patient experience

WellSpan York, Cancer Center, York, PA

WellSpan Health initiated strategic planning for the new WellSpan York Cancer Center (YCC) Expansion in order to evaluate growth opportunity, develop a sustainable delivery model for patient access, and to “right-size” a cancer center footprint and site selection; enabling best-in-region to care across the cancer continuum; and improving patient experience and “ease of use” for YCC patients.

Focused on improved patient experiences and outcomes this three-story, 65,000 sf facility consolidates WellSpan’s cancer care services for the York, PA area at the Apple Hill Medical Campus. Creating a warm, inviting space that creates patient trust and facilitates the best possible cancer care for the community was integral. The local landscape is woven into
the interior design, and much of the clinical and infusion spaces have views to surrounding farmland and apple orchards. The new facility has direct connection to the existing Radiation Oncology program which is also renovated as part of the project. The new building houses multi-specialty clinics, a new infusion suite and related compounding pharmacy, and many other amenities all designed to provide patient resources and treatment across the entire cancer care continuum. ­

The project will include a structured parking facility and utilize phased construction to maintain patient access to the existing building.
