Crews have been building the UCHealth Greeley Campus southwest of the intersection of U.S. 34 and 65th Avenue since spring 2017, when they started moving dirt. Construction is expected to continue throughout 2018. UCHealth officials anticipate the campus, which will house both Greeley Hospital and Greeley Medical Center, will open in spring/summer 2019.

Spanning approximately 200,000 square feet, the hospital will include 53 inpatient beds with room to grow. It will include a birth center, intensive care unit, operating and endoscopy rooms, a Level III trauma center and an emergency department.

The new UCHealth Greeley Medical Center will be a 112,500-square-foot outpatient medical center that will bring many of the services UCHealth offers at locations throughout Greeley under one convenient roof. It will include primary care services, specialty clinics, diagnostics, pharmacy, endoscopy, oncology services, imaging and laboratory services.
