NEW HEALTH AND MEDICAL CENTER BRINGS PARTNERS AND SERVICES TOGETHER
by Jeff Dodge
One of the newest buildings at CSU will be much more than stone and mortar. A holistic source of health and medical care serving the University and the community at large, it will act as a welcoming gateway on the campus’s southeast shoulder.
The CSU Health and Medical Center, expected to open in Summer 2017, will serve as the new home for CSU Student Health Network services currently housed in the 1960s-era Hartshorn Health Services Building and Aylesworth Hall.
The $59 million center will also feature a public walk-in clinic with extended hours – operated by Associates in Family Medicine in partnership with UCHealth, which committed $5 million to the project – and a new Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging, made possible by a $5 million gift from Columbine Health Systems president and owner Bob Wilson, and his wife, Kitty.
“This new building allows us to be a health presence on campus that serves the entire community and allows for greater partnerships,” said Anne Hudgens, executive director of the Health Network.
The facility was designed to encourage cooperation and coordination among the partners involved. The first floor will be a model of collaboration, featuring a shared reception area for the walk-in clinic, the healthy aging center, and a satellite office of the Kendall Reagan Nutrition Center, thanks in part to a gift from Pat (’83) and Larry Kendall. That floor will also house public services, including occupational health, an infusion center, a pharmacy, and a radiology suite shared by the public clinic and the CSU Student Health Network.
The upper floors will accommodate Health Network services, such as optometry, a women’s clinic, dental care, counseling, a travel clinic, and health education and prevention services for the CSU campus community.
“It’s about having multiple offerings in one building, with a broader reach,” Hudgens said. “The idea is to not duplicate, and to have services for many populations.”
