University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is the largest academic health center in the Rocky Mountain region. The campus includes the University of Colorado health professional schools, multiple centers and institutes and two nationally ranked teaching hospitals that treat 1.9 million patients each year. All interconnected, these organizations collaboratively improve the quality of patient care they deliver, research they conduct, and health professionals they train.
At the heart of the campus is Building 500, the former Fitzsimons Army Hospital. 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.
