South Carolina Oncology Associates

Columbia, South Carolina

South Carolina Oncology Associates (SCOA) provides medical, radiation, and gynecological oncology services, along with diagnostic radiology, infusion therapy, hospice, and research. Its 107,000 square-foot facility in Columbia is the only comprehensive cancer treatment center in South Carolina. 

The facility was planned with the twin goals of increasing comfort and reducing stress for patients and their families. Teaming with Young Office in Greenville, South Carolina, SCOA used colors, artwork, and foliage throughout the environment to create a caring, compassionate facility. Frank Sobash, Chief Operating Officer of SCOA, commented, “We really are providing a new level of oncology care, and we wanted this to be communicated throughout our entire facility.  It is a friendly, caring environment, one that we hope helps our patients live longer, happier lives.”

Nemschoff seating and tables were chosen to complement the compassionate, inviting environment and also to provide comfort.  “There are over 500 Nemschoff seating positions in this facility, and each and every one of them provides comfort while seamlessly enhancing the beautiful environment we’ve created,” said lead designer Amy Garrett. Along with meeting the project’s aesthetic goals, Nemschoff was also selected because it provides long-term value and is from a nationally known company. 

“We really enjoyed working with Nemschoff on this project.  They were lots of fun, provided excellent follow through, and took all of the unknowns out of a project such as ours,” said Sobash. “Additionally, they have a really great fabric program that we took full advantage of.  I look forward to our next project.”
