Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute

, University Hospitals of Cleveland

Cleveland, OH


Nationally renowned Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital now offers adolescent and young adult cancer patients an innovative outpatient experience that meets their distinctive treatment and social needs. Our team worked closely with medical staff, patients, families, and the Fowler family – the donor in whose daughter’s memory the Institute was named – to create an innovative environment that has proven effective both in treating patients and in attracting top cancer researchers and physicians.

The design transforms the eighth floor of Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital into a “journey of light and healing” through various zones of interaction. Patients follow the 60-foot-long illuminated “welcome wall” from the lobby to one of two treatment wings and a decentralized-care team station adjacent to treatment and examination rooms. Possible stops along the way include waiting areas, consultation and meeting rooms and a pharmacy, as well as a teen lounge where patients can hang out together or retreat on their own.
