AURORA, Colo. (Feb. 24, 2010) – The University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) Internal Medicine & Specialty Care Practice in Cherry Creek will be moving to a new location in the Lowry neighborhood on March 8, 2010.

As part of UCH efforts to update and upgrade facilities, the new location was built with the patient in mind. From the entryway and lobby to the front desk and examination rooms, careful consideration was given to the comfort and privacy of patients. The new facility also will accommodate more doctors and staff.

“University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) is always looking for ways to serve our patients more efficiently,” said Bruce Schroffel, President and CEO of UCH. “When the internal medicine & specialty care practice moves from Garfield Street to Lowry, our patients should expect to see improved access to care and minimal waiting times.”

In addition, in the new building, UCH is adding several specialty services for patients who need to see certain types of physicians. University of Colorado Hospital Internal Medicine & Specialty Care at Lowry will become a multi-specialty care center with the addition of cardiology, ear, nose & throat, obstetrics/gynecology, hand surgery and podiatry.

“The addition of specialists will offer opportunities for collaboration in our patient’s care, as well as a chance to develop academic ties that could foster future research directions,” said Wagner Schorr-Ratzlaff, MD, medical director of the expanded practice.

The new facility also will have a large retail pharmacy so patients will be able to enjoy the convenience of filling their prescriptions without having to drive to another location. The pharmacy services also will be available to the community at large.

University of Colorado Hospital Internal Medicine & Specialty Care at Lowry will move to the new location on March 8, 2010. The new address will be: 8111 E. Lowry Boulevard, Suite 120, Denver, Colorado 80230.

The University of Colorado Hospital is the Rocky Mountain region’s leading academic medical center, and has been recognized as one of the United States’ best hospitals, according to U.S. News & World Report. It is best known as an innovator in patient care and often as one of the first hospitals to bring new medicine to patients’ bedsides. Located at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colo., the hospital’s physicians are all affiliated with the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine, part of the University of Colorado system.
