Magnuson Yields to Hatfield
Construction Set to Start on New Clinical Research Center

By Rich McManus

If you think the campus is looking carved-up now, you haven't seen anything yet. This fall, construction will begin on the new Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center (CRC), a low-rise addition to the north face of the Warren Grant Magnuson Clinical Center (Bldg. 10). The new CRC will house all of the inpatients currently located in the 44-year-old outmoded and overcrowded facility, and add new research space, a vivarium, and a variety of patient-friendly areas including skylit atria, courtyards, glass bridges linking to Bldg. 10, a bookstore, cafe, and an airy chapel.
