The Anschutz Medical Campus

Starting in 1996, the Anschutz Foundation began making a stunningly generous series of gifts to help both the University of Colorado Hospital and the University of Colorado Denver build new facilities on the just-decommissioned site of the Fitzsimons Army Medical Center in Aurora, Colorado.

In gratitude. In late 2006 the university’s Board of Regents named the portions of the old Army site it controlled The Anschutz Medical Campus.

On the campus. By then, its occupants included many hospital buildings (many of which, in turn, had already been named to honor Philip Anschutz and the Anschutz Foundation) as well the health science and graduate schools of the University of Colorado Denver.

Neighbors. And, by then, many other health care, scientific and medical enterprises had been attracted to the area. They include Children’s Hospital Colorado, University Physicians Inc., and the Fitzsimons Life Sciences District, which will be home to a stunning collection of bioscience research organizations.

In addition, the Veterans Administration Medical Center is now being built in the area. All are neighbors of, although not technically on, the Anschutz Medical Campus. View links to neighbors of the Anschutz Medical Campus.
