Improving lives for generations to come, Highlands Ranch Hospital provides advanced health care and innovative medical treatments to its growing community. Featuring the UC Health Birth Center, the state-of-the-art facilities bustle with activity and excitement, delivering an average of 2,000 babies a year.
The Hospital’s concept and design are unique, combining an in-patient hospital and outpatient services in a single building. The hospital's Y-shaped footprint allows its programs to share a central lobby, elevators, and other amenities. And, with south Denver expected to grow 25% by 2025, the arms of the Y can extend outward for phased expansion.
A split-level entrance to Highlands Ranch's light-filled atrium aligns with the site's natural topography. Colorado Buff stone, brick, and wood-like metal panels combine with sleek metal and glass, inside and out, to create a facility with a clear Colorado identity.
Inside the high-tech, six-story building, patients and families come first. Parents of infants who need extra care and support can "room in" at the NICU. Personalized treatment plans are created through a partnership with the University of Colorado healthcare faculty and researchers. "Nursing neighborhoods" also ensure that patients receive round-the-clock attention.
Think "high-tech, high-touch" are buzzwords? A patient told reporters covering the hospital's first anniversary that her doctor "held my hand during the darkest days I have ever experienced." Patients are the priority at Highlands Ranch Hospital.
The hospital adjoins a public park that connects an adjacent retail development and several neighborhoods with the medical campus — bringing advanced, compassionate medical care to the community's backyard.
