Construction is underway on the new Anschutz Health Sciences building at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. The building, which is expected to open in 2021, is in a gateway location at the western border of campus in Aurora. Providing 390,000 square feet of space for research programs and education, the building will become one of the largest and most advanced medical campuses in the nation.
The $176 million investment provides new facilities for computational research and clinical trials, an education medical simulation hub, mental and behavioral health research clinics, faculty offices, and other educational spaces. The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus had a reported 2 million patient visits on their campus last year, and collected more than $516 million in research funding. The medical campus also received $120 million from The Anschutz Foundation and Phillip Anschutz in 2018, the largest gift in its history.
The Anschutz Health Sciences building will lay a foundation for incredible medical breakthroughs to take place. According to the Dean of the university, John J. Reilly, the University of Colorado School of Medicine aims to be in the top ten percent of American medical schools by the year 2020. Through the development of new educational programs in the basic and clinical sciences, as well as always tending to the needs of the patients they serve, the Anschutz Medical campus will bring about a remarkable change in medical advances. Life science professionals at Anschutz will be looking to purchase the most innovative laboratory products to help them achieve this goal.
