US$77m renovation of UCHealth Poudre Valley Hospital begins in Colorado

A multimillion-dollar renovation of UCHealth Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado, a 303-bed regional medical facility, has begun led by a firm specializing in integrated design-build, The Beck Group who is the general contractor on the project, while Gallun Snow is in charge of the interior design. Poudre Valley Hospital is part of the UCHealth network of healthcare institutions in Aurora, Colorado, that serves sections of Colorado, Nebraska, and Wyoming. The hospital’s US$76.5 million remodeling project is set to be completed in the summer of 2023. The makeover will take up around 142,000 square feet of area, or roughly one-third of the facility.

Beck was granted the contract by Poudre Valley Hospital after more than two years of pre-construction work on the project, previous building projects for the hospital, and considerable competence in healthcare facility design and construction. “We are delighted that Poudre Valley Hospital chose our company for this important makeover,” said Matt Archuletta, Project Executive of Beck’s Denver office. Beck Hospital underwent necessary improvements for several years, allowing it to maintain its position as one of the region’s leading healthcare providers. This newest initiative is intended to strengthen Poudre Valley Hospital’s reputation as a cutting-edge healthcare institution for its patients.”

UCHealth Poudre Valley Hospital upgrades

The hospital’s makeover is the latest in a long line of improvements for the almost century-old building, ranging from minor retrofitting and tweaks to major additions. The new project focuses on making numerous upgrades to the hospital’s interior and exterior in order to greatly improve patient service and experience. Interior work on the hospital’s first floor will take use of vacant space formerly occupied by the emergency department, which has been transferred elsewhere. This will involve the construction of a new heart and vascular care clinic and testing room, the renovation of surgical, imaging, gastrointestinal, and pulmonary sections, corridors, and the relocation of the gift and coffee shops as well as the chapel. The third-floor makeover will update the hospital’s birthing center, women’s and pediatric care sections, patient recovery quarters, and other facilities, as well as install new technology.
