Because care models will evolve and buildings must readily adapt to change, several planning options and adjacency studies were developed. The plan supports flexible expansion over time with phased buildings that can be funded sequentially for different uses and services and identifies flexible land tracts for other types of development. The experience of the new campus is patient-focused at every level. The conceptual landscape plan and planned built environment provides relief, respite, and easy pedestrian-level access. Walkable landscapes and inviting green spaces allow users to engage with the outdoors, reducing stressful elements of a large institution.

Pioneering cancer research

Moffitt is one of the leading cancer facilities in the world, renowned for its clinical discoveries and breakthroughs in treatment. At Moffitt, doctors and researchers collaborate across disciplines to develop treatment plans that are more effective, conduct studies more efficiently, and deliver new therapies more quickly.

In order to remain at the forefront of cancer care, Moffitt worked on a new master plan for a satellite campus. Moffitt now has a clear path for continued growth, equipped with expanded clinics, research facilities, and technology. Built around a vision of future patient needs, this new center will aid individual patients, expedite new therapies, and help the medical profession as a whole to understand this disease.
