CSU Health and Medical Center

The Colorado State University Health and Medical Center, on the northwest corner of Prospect Road and College Avenue, is now open!

A ribbon cutting celebration and Community Open House were held to honor donors and introduce the Fort Collins community to the wide range of services available to the public.

Representatives from all members of this unique partnership, including CSU Student Health Network, UCHealth, Associates in Family Medicine, Poudre Infusion Therapy, Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging, and Kendall Reagan Nutrition Center, were present to conduct building tours and answer questions and provide information about the services provided to everyone in the community.

An additional campus open house and student celebration event will be held in mid-September.

The CSU Health and Medical Center houses the CSU Student Health Network, which provides a full range of medical, mental health, and education and prevention services for students. The center also will enhance medical services provided to the public through tenant agreements with UCHealth and Associates in Family Medicine, including a walk-in clinic and occupational health services. The facility provides space and a framework for the new Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging, which will conduct collaborative research on aging and educational, community outreach programs. The Kendall Reagan Nutrition Center, which provides public nutrition counseling, has expanded into the building.

The 113,000 square-foot, $59 million building, owned and operated by CSU, is funded by CSU student fees, CSU Health Network revenue, and in part by private donations including a $5 million gift from UCHealth, and a $5 million gift from Bob and Kitty Wilson, on behalf of Columbine Health Systems. Donors to the project also include Pat and Larry Kendall, the Boettcher Foundation, and the Griffin Foundation. Funding also comes from CSU Student Health Network revenue and leases from our tenant partners, UCHealth, Columbine Health Services, and Associates in Family Medicine.

The four-story building, on the northwest corner of College Avenue and Prospect Road, will serve the needs of CSU students and the larger Fort Collins and Northern Colorado communities.

The Health and Medical Center will consolidate the CSU Health Network in one state-of-the-art location. The CSU Student Health Network will occupy the entire second and third floors of the building, providing comprehensive medical and mental health services to CSU students.
