COLORADO SPRINGS — UCHealth broke ground on a new medical building in Colorado Springs Wednesday morning near the UCCS campus.

The new 65,000 square-foot, three-story medical office building will be located next to the Grandview Hospital, near I-25 at the N. Nevada exit.

The company said the building will house a new orthopedic clinic, a primary care practice with a focus on sports medicine, advanced orthopedic imaging services, physical therapy clinic and gym.

UCHealth said the addition of the new building will make the Grandview campus southern Colorado’s first full-service health campus with a focus on sports medicine and orthopedic care. The primary care clinic that will be housed in the building will have a specialized focus in osteoporosis, fracture prevention and sports medicine. Other primary care will also be available at the clinic.

“We are also opening an imaging center that will have the latest capabilities, including DEXA scans that measure bone health and bone density,” said Andrew Ritchie, chief administrative officer for Grandview Hospital. “In addition, the center will have a weight-bearing CT machine, a relatively new technology that is important for diagnosing foot and ankle concerns.”

UCHealth said construction is expected to wrap up in late 2020.
