Aurora, Colo. (Aug. 22, 2012) – The University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) is building a 36,000-square-foot medical care facility in the city of Lone Tree to serve patients in the South Denver Metro area, including Highlands Ranch, Castle Rock, Centennial and Parker. Patients will find many of the same services and specialties that are offered at the Anschutz Medical Center in a smaller, more convienent setting.
The physicians who practice at the facility are faculty of the University of Colorado School of Medicine (CU-SOM) and are experts in their respective specialties. The size and scope of the new facility represents the most significant and visible off-campus addition UCH and CU-SOM have ever made. This development also includes an adjacent ambulatory surgery center.
“The Lone Tree Health Center is about making the highest quality medical care easily available to more Coloradans,” said Christina Finlayson, MD, associate dean of clinical affairs at CU-SOM. “This new facility will offer the finest evidence-based medical care provided by some of the country’s leading physicians, just as it is on the Anschutz Medical Campus. This location will provide easy access and exceptional customer service for patients who live in this community.”
In addition to internal medicine, the Lone Tree Health Center will offer the following specialty services:
- medical oncology
- ear, nose and throat
- urologic gynecology
- gynecologic oncology
- physical medicine and rehabilitation
- spine, foot and ankle, joint and hand surgery
- physical and occupational therapy
The facility will also house radiology imaging services.
“The city of Lone Tree is an ideal location for us because it offers the best space and the best location in terms of giving a large population convenient access to our providers and services,” said John Harney, CEO of UCH. “Combined with additional services offered in our nearby Park Meadows location that include family medicine, the eye center and the Visage Center for facial plastics and cosmetics, as well as our Tomotherapy radiation oncology center, we will soon have a significant complement of health services more readily available to people who live nearby and even as far away as Parker and Castle Rock. We are undergoing a monumental transformation at UCH—you no longer have to come to us. We will come to you.”
The Lone Tree Health Center will be located at 9548 Park Meadows Drive. The building’s 36,000 square feet will accommodate 36 exam rooms, three procedure rooms and cardiac echograph and treadmill stress-test equipment. The oncology section will include 10 infusion areas. In addition, UCH is in the process of building out a day-surgery center across the street from the new Lone Tree Health Center.
Mortenson Construction is the contractor on the project, and H+L Architecture is in charge of the archtecture and interiors.
