The Whyalla Regional Cancer Centre is being recognised for its quality build and style.
The centre, created by Hames Sharley architects, has acquired a commendation for public architecture from the Australian Institute of Architects South Australia.
The centre has also been shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival Awards as 1 of the best health creating types as well as the Idea Awards for excellence in Interior Design.
Nation Wellness SA Eyre Flinders and Far North regional director Ros McCrae explained the hospital was thrilled to hear the centre was shortlisted.
“All through the planning and construction phases of the building, architects Hames Sharley worked closely with Whyalla hospital employees, from nurses to cleaners and our most senior clinicians, to deliver not only an attractive building, but one that would allow workers to provide the maximum amount of cancer care achievable,” Mrs McCrae said.
“Cancer therapy is a huge challenge for clients, as effectively as their people and close friends, and that is why having a contemporary, comfortable and function built centre is so important.
“We would like Hames Sharley all the very best at the awards this Oct.”
