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.
Sept. 30, 2019
Over the next few weeks, several construction projects will be underway throughout the campus to help us prepare for construction of the Center for Outpatient Health. We anticipate that some of these projects may impact employees and patients.
Bellevue Parking Lot Expansion
We are creating a temporary parking lot on the current grassy area in the Bellevue Parking Lot (southwest corner of Colorado Boulevard and 14th Avenue). This space will provide additional parking once construction starts on the Center for Outpatient Health. Construction of the temporary parking lot should be complete in late October.
Boiler Replacement – street closure
Work is underway to replace an old boiler on our campus. Due to the boiler's size, 14th Avenue near Jackson Street will be closed to traffic on Saturday, Oct. 5, for installation of the new boiler.
Sanitary Line Relocation – sidewalk closure
We need to move a city sanitary line that runs under the sidewalk on the north side of 14th Avenue between Garfield Street and Jackson Street. The sidewalk along that side of 14th will be closed during construction. Work began the week of 9/30 and should be complete by the end of October.
June 3, 2019
We filed formal plans with the City of Denver on June 3, 2019. This step began the review and permitting process.
We anticipate that it will take about six months for review and permitting to be completed as is common in projects such as this one.
We expect to begin construction later this year.
The new building will be located on the northwest corner of our main campus in close proximity to our current patient care areas.
We are planning a five-story, 104,000 square-foot building that will contain clinical exam and procedure rooms, and space for other ancillary services.
The building is being designed to provide a cohesive look in keeping with our campus and the neighborhood. Building plans include additional parking at the building site.
