Aspen Valley Hospital
The intent of the master plan of the Aspen Valley expansion is to transform Aspen Valley Hospital into a progressive, outpatient-oriented, user-friendly medical center. The overall Master Plan consists of four major phases totaling $100 million. This involves the phased remodel and expansion of the existing 70,000-sf, one-story community hospital into a three-story, 200,000-sf medical center for the future. The phase 3 and 4 expansion and renovation consists of approximately 55,000 sf of new programmed space and 22,000 sf of renovation. Phases 3 and 4 total over $55 million. BCER is responsible for Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection Engineering services for phase 3. One of the major project goals is to achieve a LEED Silver certification. In addition to LEED certification, the project is seeking compliance with the City of Aspen’s “Canary Initiative”, which stresses that all new buildings in Aspen produce a zero carbon footprint. Major components of the plan include a 15,000-sf surgery department, 7,000 sf of outpatient clinics, The Aspen Birthplace, a new patient care unit, cardiac rehab/cardiopulmonary suites, an orthopedic sports medicine center of excellence, and up to 30,000 sf of medical offices.
