Kaiser Permanente Colorado, one of the largest nonprofit health plans, recently announced that it has completed construction on its new multi-specialty center in Lone Tree.
Situated across the street from the RTD Lincoln Station Light Rail, northwest of Interstate 25 and East Lincoln Avenue, the center is scheduled to open to Kaiser Permanente members on December 2. The Lone Tree center will become Kaiser Permanente’s 27th medical office in Colorado. Located at 10240 Park Meadows Drive, the 275,000-square-foot building will see equipment, furniture and information systems installed over the next two months. Around 300 Kaiser Permanente employees are expected to occupy the building in October; 130 positions will be new hires.
“Kaiser Permanente is committed to achieving the best health outcomes for our members, which depends on our ability to provide broad access to high quality, affordable care close to home,” said Donna Lynne, DrPH, president, Kaiser Permanente Colorado. “Our Lone Tree multi-specialty center marks an important expansion of Kaiser Permanente’s footprint in South Denver. We believe our current and future members are going to love this new center.”
The Lone Tree multi-specialty center is a phased development which ultimately will encompass a 20-acre integrated health campus. The project is designed by Davis Partnership Architects, while Adolf & Peterson Construction is offering full CM/GC services. Upon the opening of the center in December, Kaiser Permanente members will have access to numerous medical specialty services spread across the six-floor development, including medical imaging, clinical trials, oncology, ophthalmology, an ambulatory surgery center, allergy and gastroenterology and clinical palliative care. Other specialties such as cardiology, endocrinology and neurology will be added once phase two of the development is completed.
The center has been constructed under the LEED certification system and incorporates numerous green features such as: water use reduction of 20 percent via xeriscaping and low-flow plumbing fixtures, use of building materials with recycled content and lower toxins, energy use reduction targeted at 20 percent through Xcel Energy conservation measures built into the project, and shading devices installed in the window wall system to aid the balance of solar heat gain.
