UCHealth’s new four-story outpatient medical center is now open on the Longs Peak Hospital campus in Longmont.

The 100,000-square-foot Longs Peak Medical Center houses a new rehabilitation center and a new oncology radiation service, as well as several specialty clinics, an imaging center, a lab and a coffee shop. Opening soon in the same building are a behavioral health clinic and an independent oncology clinic.

Stephanie Koenig, vice president of operations at UCHealth Longs Peak Hospital, said the hospital first started looking at the needs of the community several years ago to plan for the outpatient medical center, with construction taking about a year.

“We’re very excited to get this up and running,” Koenig said. “It’s a beautiful space for comprehensive care.”

She said the hospital services relocated to the new medical center also will allow for future expansion of hospital in-patient beds, though how many additional beds hasn’t yet been decided. The hospital now has 63 beds, including 12 ICU beds.

“We have seen a significant increase in patients seeking care at the hospital,” she said.

Along with the hospital and the new medical center, the Longmont campus includes a separate surgery center.

The medical center combines diagnostic care and specialty care, with services that include physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, cardio-pulmonary rehabilitation and a full range of imaging and breast diagnostics services.

The University of Colorado School of Medicine also is providing radiation oncology services on the first floor. The suite includes a linear accelerator, a device used for external beam radiation treatments, and a CT simulation scanner, which allows radiation oncologists to see the areas that need to be targeted and personalize treatments.

Later in the summer, Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers Longmont, an independent oncology practice, will begin caring for patients on the building’s third floor through office visits and infusion services.

In the fall, the UCHealth Refractory Depression Clinic, which offers electroconvulsive therapy, medication management and psychotherapy for patients with severe depression and other mental disorders, will be moving from the hospital to the medical center.

“The medical center will play a big part in helping us care for our growing community for generations to come,” Longs Peak Hospital President Lonnie Cramer said in a written statement.
