The new outpatient medical center offers patients specialty care in audiology, cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, orthopedics, urology and vascular; a surgery center with state-of-the-art imaging capabilities; and a comprehensive cancer center, as well as an on-site pharmacy and outpatient laboratory services. Approximately 300 parking spaces are provided in 4-1/2 underground parking levels of cast-in-place concrete. The above-grade steel structure is clad with curtain wall. High-end commercial finishes are found throughout the common areas such as the main lobby, department reception areas, elevator lobbies, and non-treatment areas.

With construction 20 feet below the water table, Swinerton conducted de-watering and installed a waterproofing system –the Grace Preprufe SCS system – instead of using traditional, two-sided wall forming methods. This decision removed two months from the construction schedule and improved logistics in the congested Cherry Creek neighborhood.
