The Upstate Cancer Center at Verona strategically leverages design and cutting-edge medical technology to create a unified healing community. Situated in Verona, New York, this single-story building marks a groundbreaking collaboration between the Oneida Indian Nation, the State of New York, and Cameron Verona, LLC.


Designed in a joint effort with the Upstate Cancer Center team, this facility transcends traditional healthcare paradigms, introducing innovations in patient experience and treatment protocols. Offering outpatient cancer care across diverse specialties, the center prioritizes the restoration of its patient’s health and well-being, delivering a personalized and supportive experience for patients and caregivers.

From carefully planned interiors to a purposeful exterior expression, the 30,000-sf center diverges from the conventional hospital setting, fostering a genuinely improved experience. Housing state-of-the-art technologies such as the latest Linear Accelerator in Radiation Oncology and a 15-bay infusion suite in Hematology Oncology, the facility also boasts comprehensive diagnostic capabilities in the Radiology suite.

Beyond technological advancements, the interior environment is a testament to intentional design, configured as suites of collaborative physician practices around a hospitality focused reception and lounge to promote efficiency and interdisciplinary collaboration. This single-floor layout streamlines patient visits and enhances clinician interactions.

The design underscores Upstate’s commitment to “Healing through nature,” creating a welcoming environment that addresses the anxieties associated with cancer care. The infusion suite, with an abundance of natural light, prioritizes patient well-being, promoting privacy and relaxation.
