Peake: Partnership Brings Quality Care Closer to Veterans

WASHINGTON, April 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new bed tower and a research tower for Denver-area residents and veterans may result from an expanded partnership involving the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the University of Colorado Denver and the University of Colorado Hospital (UCH).

The two structures, to be built on University property at the former Fitzsimons Army Medical Center campus, will accompany a state-of-the-art VA Ambulatory Health Care Center, which will also be constructed at that location.

"I'm pleased to move forward with the University of Colorado Denver and University of Colorado Hospital to provide world-class care for veterans," said Dr. James B. Peake, Secretary of Veterans Affairs. "This exciting new plan will bring health care closer to many of the region's veterans."

The new VA Medical Center will provide primary and specialty care for Rocky Mountain-area veterans; outpatient surgical services; and a nursing home care unit. VA doctors, nurses and other clinical personnel will serve veterans at the bed tower in what has been called "a hospital within a hospital," while non-veteran patients will be served by UCH staff. VA and University of Colorado - Denver researchers will work side by side in the new research tower.

This partnership will allow the two organizations to share resources, such as laboratory and imaging services. It will further strengthen the long-standing partnership among the two organizations.

"We are excited about this unique partnership, which will provide expanded opportunity for extraordinary clinical care and advanced research, not only for residents of Colorado, but for veterans in the Rocky Mountain area," said Bruce Benson, President of the University of Colorado.

VA also announced it will improve services for Colorado veterans in two additional ways. The Department's Colorado Springs community-based outpatient clinic will expand, adding specialty services and same-day surgeries to the primary care already provided to veterans. In addition, the surgical program at the Grand Junction VA Medical Center will expand, reducing the need for many Colorado veterans to travel to Denver for surgery. Joint meetings will be held soon to better describe this relationship.

The partnership called for in this announcement will be undertaken through the normal planning process.
