University of Colorado Denver
Program Plan for the Health Wellness Center
With the goal of making metro Denver one of the country s healthiest communities the new
University of Colorado Denver Health and Wellness Center at the Anschutz Medical Campus
represents a leading edge model for lifelong wellness and preventative treatment
This facility will provide the functional and programmatic elements to serve existing Center s
for Human Nutrition Integrative Medicine and Women s Health Research becoming a crucible
for a synergistic relationship between these disciplines Complimenting these disciplines will be
outreach and educational space a demonstration kitchen a healthy foods caf bistro a fitness
center including a therapeutic pool and a healthy foods grocery market The facility will be a
beacon for fitness serving the campus community and will serve the region as a one stop shop
for fitness health research and lifestyle management
Conceptually the goal is not just a co location of these programs within one building but also a
facility that provides the functions that all of the programs may share
University of Colorado Denver
Program Plan for the Health Wellness Center
Opportunities are provided by the shared services creating an environment that allows for natural
collaboration This facility will become a destination for health and wellness through these
programs and through new approaches that result from the synergies of these programs within
this facility
Additionally this facility will generate through partnering with the new Executive Health
program and its growing reputation as a regional and national destination for lifestyle change the
need for overnight stays as part of its program and include the provision of residential
tranquility rooms for short term stays
I Overview
a Executive Summary
Vision and Mission
The University of Colorado Denver UC Denver Health and Wellness Center HWC will make
the Anschutz Medical Campus AMC a beacon for health promotion and disease prevention
throughout Colorado with a reputation extending nationally and internationally Through its
programs the center will empower individuals to achieve healthier lives and to create healthier
communities through sustainable life long changes in diet physical activity and personal health
management Unlike more conventional approaches to health promotion and disease prevention
the HWC will offer science based programs that are developed primarily from the vast breadth
of knowledge of UC Denver researchers and clinicians A second and equally important
differentiating feature in the proposed HWC model is the incorporation of Integrative Medicine
throughout each of the center s programmatic elements In keeping with its mission the HWC
will have a strong external focus that influences healthy living beyond the AMC and in family
and community settings throughout metro Denver and Colorado
The HWC will facilitate an integrated approach to health and wellness by bringing together in a
single comprehensive facility a number of existing disparate programs of UC Denver and the
University of Colorado Hospital UCH including the Center for Human Nutrition the Center for
Integrative Medicine and the Center for Women s Health Research The co location of these
core programs and the resulting synergies that will develop among the faculty will truly
differentiate the programmatic service lines including weight management nutrition and diet
integrative medicine and physical activity In addition to the core programs the facility will also
house a number of critical ancillary services designed to promote healthy lifestyles such as a
demonstration kitchen for healthy cooking educational rooms to support seminars and classes
geared toward healthy living and quiet open spaces that allow for meditation and reflection
Given the nature and purpose of the center s programs the building will be designed in a
Colorado style and will be warm and welcoming to guests and employees
University of Colorado Denver
Program Plan for the Health Wellness Center
The consolidation of programs within a world class facility will enable UC Denver scientists to
become even more competitive for external research funding Furthermore the HWC will
enable UC Denver to become successful within the multi billion dollar health and wellness
industry that is currently dominated by a handful of top academic institutions such as Cooper
Clinic in Dallas Duke University and the Mayo Clinic While the market leaders in this
industry share common attributes including high brand awareness marketing savvy consumer
acceptance and a loyal affluent participant base the HWC will have a number of differentiating
attributes which include
Innovative lifestyle modification combined with integrative medicine programs
Incorporating elements of the HWC in partnership with the Executive Health Program
Programs that primarily serve the AMC population and its patients
Community based programs that bring health and wellness to the people of Colorado and
neighboring states
Women s health programs designed to provide tools for women to become change agents for
their own health and wellness as well as that of their families
A vision of making metro Denver the healthiest community in the country
Location and Facility Cost

Racine Streets and just north of a green quadrangle known as the Parade Grounds This location
will be proximate to the west AMC entrance on Montview Boulevard It is also easily accessible

southeast Colorado Bioscience and Technology Park to the north and to the AMC community
in general The AMC campus is conveniently close to highway exchanges from I 70 and I 225
