National Jewish Health is building a Center for Outpatient Health. This new Center will support our ability to serve our patients, while also opening up space for growth for education and research in our existing facilities.
We have raised funds for this project with a Comprehensive Campaign that has garnered tremendous engagement from our community of supporters in Denver and around the nation, who recognize the need and benefits of this project and have given generously.
Our Comprehensive Campaign has created a strong foundation for the new Center and has continued to raise money for the project.
We are grateful to the thousands of people across the country who have supported this project.
We also have worked with our partners at SCL Health and Saint Joseph Hospital to plan the space to meet the needs of patients at both our organizations.

The fence has gone up and work to prepare the area for construction of our new Center for Outpatient Health (COH) is underway. Our construction contractor Mortenson Construction has begun clearing the ground on the building site and other preparatory work. National Jewish Health is working to finalize all permits and plans with the city of Denver and awaiting the final permits, which are anticipated by the end of January.
In addition, the City of Denver Storm Water Project is just beginning. It will cause the main entrance to our campus to temporarily change from Colfax to an entrance off 14th Avenue, beginning Saturday, Jan. 18. The change is anticipated to last through August 2020.
The City of Denver is replacing many of the storm drains in streets that have had regular flooding issues, including in our area. Jackson Street, which runs through our main campus, will have enlarged storm drains installed. We have been working with the City to allow the new storm drains to come across our property, rather than through the residential neighborhood to our west.
There are links above to the latest campus entrance directions and parking maps. We recommend that patients and visitors use the free valet parking service at the main entrance to National Jewish Health. Patients should allow themselves a little extra time to arrive and check-in for their appointment.
