Publicity: Huntsman Cancer Institute Among Top Ten Most Beautiful Hospitals in Nation

Soliant Health has hosted a competition to find the most beautiful hospitals in the USA for ten years. In 2019, the Nexus designed Huntsman Cancer Institute came in as the ninth most beautiful hospital in the nation. See the full top 20 list here.

A moving essay written by a hospital volunteer, nominating the Huntsman Cancer Institute for this recognition reads:

When you walk into the hospital, often to the sound of the grand piano being played in the lobby, the beauty almost takes your breath away. The architecture is enhanced by artworks in the halls, lobbies, and public areas. Hospital rooms provide serene views of the Salt Lake Valley or the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains, which are covered in a blanket of sage, grasses, and wildflowers.

James Pehkonen, Hospital Volunteer

Arch Nexus is grateful for the opportunity to have designed each phase of the world class cancer treatment facility. We are humbled by the generosity and innovation of the Huntsman Foundation and the progress they continue to make toward eradicating cancer.
