Breaking Ground on New Campus Building

Groundbreaking-350(April 2019) Leaders from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and The Anschutz Foundation in January broke ground on the Anschutz Health Sciences Building. 

The new seven-story building, which is expected to open in mid-2021, will serve as the home for personalized medicine, translational science, mental and behavioral health programs, and a patient simulation center. It will also provide additional office space for faculty. 

This new building is a resource that is much-needed because of the consistently outstanding work, the dedication and insight, and the continued breakthroughs of faculty and staff. The construction could begin thanks to a gift from Philip Anschutz and The Anschutz Foundation, which have been steadfast supporters of the Anschutz Medical Campus since its founding. The building is designed to promote collaboration on campus.

“Innovation doesn’t happen in a silo,” said Don Elliman, chancellor of CU Anschutz Medical Campus. “It happens when people work together, in teams, across disciplines, and we look at this building as being a hugely integral part of the future of the innovation ecosystem on this campus.”‚Äč
