The $135 million, 153,000-square-foot UCHealth Greeley Hospital, and the $50 million, 112-square-foot UCHealth Medical Center, are being built in phases southwest of U.S. Highway 34 Bypass and 65th Avenue.
Both the hospital and medical center are expected to be completed in late 2018.
The project, led by general contractor JE Dunn Construction, will generate 500 jobs, and the hospital and medical center will create 300 new health-care jobs once they are open, according to a UCHealth prepared statement.
“They picked a good location because Greeley is growing to the west,” Tom Norton said. … It will be an important part of how Greeley grows.” Greeley’s population was estimated at 100,883 in 2015 with projected 14 percent growth to 114,779 by 2020. Weld County is expected to grow 22 percent by 2020 to 347,839.
The four-story hospital will provide 53 beds with room to grow and will include an intensive-care unit, an emergency department, operating rooms, advanced cardiology services, a birth center and a pharmacy. It will have a heliport for emergency transfers to other acute-care hospitals.
The three-story medical center will have 192 exam rooms to start with and be the new home for many UCHealth physicians who already provide primary and specialty care to patients across the region. Outpatient services will include cancer care, dermatology, ear, nose and throat, general surgery, imaging, labs, neurology, obstetrics/gynecology, orthopedics, pediatrics, physical therapy, primary care, pulmonology, rehabilitation, rheumatology, urology and a pharmacy.
