The expansion includes the construction of a new tower on the north side of the hospital.
The project features the establishment of a cancer center, expansion of the emergency department, and additional imaging and cardiac spaces.
Hospital bed capacity will increase from 191 to 287, with potential growth up to 323 beds upon completion.
UCHealth plans to hire over 250 employees before the expansion opens. Key components of the project include a five-story tower with specialized units, a radiation oncology department, and a linear accelerator.
The cancer center will house gynecological and medical oncology clinics, along with an infusion center. The emergency department will expand, incorporating 22 new patient care rooms and a new entrance.
Cardiac facilities, including catheterization, device, structural heart, and vascular labs, will be added to the south side of the existing hospital building.
Imaging services will be expanded with additional CT, ultrasound, and MRI services, along with an interventional radiology suite.
Parking will be expanded to accommodate the growing number of patients and staff.
The cancer center is expected to start seeing patients in 2024, while the new tower is slated to open in 2026.
