The new world-class Colorado State University Health and Medical Center represents the achievement of a vision – to integrate all health services meeting the complete needs of students into one building. The four-story, 161,000-sf facility houses full medical, counseling and health education and prevention services for students – through the CSU Health Network – and includes services for the public through a University of Colorado Health walk-in clinic and a full-service pharmacy. In addition, the Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging has space in the facility for research, education and outreach. Three entities, one building, one mission: providing “Care for Body and Mind”. The new facility replaces aging facilities that were built when the campus student population was a third of what it is now.
Previously, medical and counselling services were housed in two separate buildings; both built decades ago. The new state-of-art building brings these services under one roof for the first time and provides the university with the space to meet the health care needs of the growing student population well into the future.
Located at the intersection of two main roadways in Fort Collins – College Avenue and Prospect Road – the facility represents a new front door to the university, often the first building prospective students will see when visiting the campus – complete with a prominent bronze ram statue representing the school mascot. The project was delivered design-build lump sum by the team of Adolfson & Peterson Construction, Bennett Wagner Grody Architects and a large group of subconsultant engineers and subcontractors, which collaboratively worked together to create a stunning structure with welcoming and functional spaces that stands as a beacon of health for the campus and surrounding community.
