Denver – Mortenson Construction, a top builder in Colorado, today announced that it has been awarded the contract to build UCHealth’s new Highlands Ranch hospital. Located just south of C-470 and Lucent Boulevard, UCHealth Highlands Ranch Hospital will bring advanced health services to residents in Highlands Ranch and Douglas County. UCHealth will partner with community physicians and the University of Colorado School of Medicine to provide care at the new hospital, which will open with 72 inpatient beds and provide an ICU, operating rooms, advanced cardiac services, an emergency department and complete imaging capabilities.
EYP Health (formerly known as WHR Architects) is the architect for the Highlands Ranch hospital. “The hospital design is based on a prototype that EYP Health developed for UCHealth’s Longs Peak Hospital, an efficient, flexible model with a memorable brand identity that reflects the Colorado context,” said Tushar Gupta, AIA, principal with EYP Health.
“Mortenson is proud to continue its relationship with UCHealth and to deliver another state-of-the-art health care facility serving patients and health care providers in Colorado,” said Maja Rosenquist, senior vice president and general manager for Mortenson’s Denver office. “This project will leverage Mortenson’s expertise in innovative construction techniques such as prefabrication to ensure efficiencies and the highest quality facility possible.”
Site work on the Highlands Ranch Hospital is underway with a formal groundbreaking planned for May 2017. Construction is expected to be complete late 2018.
