The University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) has been a consortium member of the University of Colorado Cancer Center since 1985. UCH constitutes the major academic partner of the CU Cancer Center and provides the majority of inpatient and outpatient services for adult patients of the CU Cancer Center.
UCH cancer physicians see nearly 100,000 outpatient cancer visits a year and its infusion center completed almost 18,000 procedures in the 2009-2010 fiscal year. The radiation oncology center saw more than 26,000 visits last year. These numbers explain why UCH expanded the Anschutz Cancer Pavilion in 2012, adding two radiation vaults and nearly doubling the number of infusion bays.
The hospital also houses a CU Cancer Center clinical trials program. The program had 1,110 people enrolled in therapeutic trials and nearly 9,000 people enrolled in prevention trials last year. Clinical research space at UCH has now grown to more than 12,000 square feet.
