Health Care
by Jennifer Hayes
The first step in Denver Health’s
five-year master facilities plan
designed to improve patient access
on themain campus is underway.
DenverHealthhas starteddemo-
lition on the vacant building at the
corner of West Sixth Avenue and
Broadway in Denver where a six-
story, 180,000-square-foot support
services building will be construct-
ed, in addition to three levels of
parking and 5,700 sf of ground-
level retail space.
The building at 601 Broadway
will house hospital administration,
physician offices and the office of
Denver’s medical examiner, all
of which will relocate from their
current home at 660 Bannock St.
once the support services building
is complete, anticipated to be in
spring 2017.
Following the move, 660 Ban-
nock will be razed for develop-
ment of theAmbulatory Care Cen-
ter, a single, centralized location
for all of the outpatient services
Denver Health offers versus the
current configuration, which has
outpatient clinics located in several
buildings on campus.
TheACCbuilding’s locationwas
chosen not only for its easy access
to both Sixth Avenue and Speer
Boulevard but also as it has a park-
ing garage behind it and is across
the street from the main hospital,
according to Denver Health.
“Building the Ambulatory Care
Center will give Denver Health
the unique opportunity to reimag-
ine the patient experience and the
way we deliver care,” said Art
Gonzalez, chief executive officer
at Denver Health. “Patient needs
and the principles of innovation,
research and cost-effective care will
be incorporated at every level of
this design.”
Rental income from the 601
Broadway building will help offset
the cost of its construction. In addi-
tion, a private drive will connect
Broadway to Acoma Street along
the north edge of the building,
representing the first time patients,
visitors and staff can access the
campus directly fromBroadway.
While construction is ongoing at
601 Broadway, design and plan-
ning will be completed for the
ACC. The newoutpatient building
is scheduled to open in early 2019.
Trammell Crow is the master
developer for the Broadway proj-
ect, which was designed by Davis
Partnership and is being construct-
ed by Hensel Phelps Construc-
tion Co. Dorit Makovsky Fisher
of Shames Makovsky is marketing
the retail portion of the property,
which is targeted toprovide conve-
nience, service-focused retail ame-
nities for employees and visitors to
Denver Health.
