On Monday, UC Health unveiled the $15 million renovation of the main entrance and lobby at UC Medical Center. The long-awaited project significantly improves access to the hospital for patients and visitors.
The renovation was announced in 2019 as part of a $221 million investment by UC Health into its 14-acre Clifton Campus. Several other projects are underway now and scheduled for completion in 2023.
“This financial investment is not just about buildings–it’s about creating healing environments where patients come to receive care for anything from the most basic health needs to the most complex illnesses and injuries. It’s about creating a place where the best and brightest clinicians and staff can bring their expertise and specialty training to practice each day,” said Rick Hinds, UC Health interim president & CEO and executive vice president and chief financial officer.
The project includes a new main drive and valet circle, upgraded topography and outdoor seating, improved lighting and wayfinding, a new entrance foyer and canopy, an updated and reconfigured lobby with new furnishings, improved access from the Bellevue Garage, a new patient check-in area and the relocation of Pharmacy and Patient Relations offices to better serve patients and visitors.
