Building on the success of the orthopedics-focused Grandview Hospital, UCHealth partnered with Remedy again to develop a state-of-the-art three-story, 65,000-square-foot medical office building on the campus, which complements the hospital’s services by featuring a seven-physician orthopedics clinic, sports medicine-focused primary care, full-service imaging center, physical therapy clinic, and 7,500 square foot rehabilitation gym on the third floor with a dramatic view of the mountains. In addition, the orthopedics clinic is designed around its own imaging suite, which includes three general radiology rooms and a CurveBeam HiRise weight-bearing CT machine, for improved patient experience.
Remedy looked for ways to minimize wasted space and increase efficiency in the MOB. An early floor plan for the first floor included a hallway leading from the elevator lobby to a side vestibule, which split the orthopedic clinic into two sections. The corridor wasn’t required for emergency egress, and eliminating it resulted in a contiguous layout for the orthopedic clinic as well as a 464 square foot reduction in common area load. By lowering the common area factor to 13.6% from 14.6%, Remedy created a rent savings for UCHealth of $156,000 over the course of its 12-year lease.

“This project has been really well coordinated and managed — probably the least stressful construction experience I’ve gone through in my career. There were some challenges during the planning phase, but Remedy kept us on time while still remaining flexible. Having that level of trust and communication with your development partner is just tremendous. We sing Remedy’s praises all the time.”
