Crain’s Detroit Business: Karmanos Outpatient Center in Farmington Hills Phase One Completed

Crain’s Detroit Business profiled the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute’s Lawrence and Idell Weisberg Cancer Treatment Center, an outpatient center in Farmington Hills, Michigan that is undergoing a $47.5 million, 64,000 SF expansion. Ghafari provided architecture, interior design, and engineering services for the multi-phase project, which builds upon the center’s existing architecture and introduces a modern design that aligns with the future growth of the oncology programs offered.

The project’s first phase, which was recently completed, adds 15,000 SF to the outpatient center, effectively doubling its size. It includes three procedure rooms, new imaging bays and research space, and an interventional radiology suite. The expanded facility also houses the Leksell Gamma Knife Icon, an advanced radiosurgery technology that treats patients who have very small brain tumors with radiation. With this addition, Karmanos becomes the first cancer center in Michigan to offer this technology.

Phase two of the project will begin this year and is expected to be completed in 2022.
