The Anschutz Medical Campus is a remarkable, new, health care city offering cutting-edge facilities in education, research and patient care at I-225 and Colfax Avenue in Aurora. At the heart of this space is Building 500, the former Fitzsimons Army Hospital. Surrounding this historic structure is a campus with 3.4 million gross square feet of space enhancing collaboration between students, faculty, researchers and clinicians. Just adjacent to campus is the Colorado Science and Technology Park at Fitzsimons, site of new start-up, high-tech, health-related companies.
If you relish historic artifacts, ask in advance to see the rooms occupied by the late President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who carried on affairs of state while recovering from a heart attack. His rooms have been preserved in Building 500.
