Construction update on Colfax Avenue
The City of Aurora is planning a major construction project near Anschutz Medical Campus. While Aurora has not yet finalized a groundbreaking start date, when it begins, a five-phase, three-year construction project will be initiated. The first phase of this construction project will occur on Colfax Avenue between Peoria and Ursula Street.
This construction project is meant to address substantial flood risk in and around Campus by installing an updated stormwater conveyance system. Please allow extra time to get to your child's appointment, and visit Aurora Water's website for project updates.
The Multidisciplinary Clinic, sometimes called the MDC, is an innovative space located on the second floor of the East Tower of Children's Colorado on Anschutz Medical Campus.
With over 60 clinics participating, the format of our Clinic enhances the ability for multidisciplinary teams to provide coordinated care for children with complex needs. Each clinic has specialists, nurses, therapists and other staff dedicated to caring for their respective patient population in a strategically designed, modular environment.
The Multidisciplinary Clinic was designed to enable optimal medical care, as well as provide patient comfort. An example of this can be seen in every exam room where colorful "wallscapes" display a mosaic of images from the Denver Zoo, Denver Botanic Gardens, and Museum of Nature and Science.
With 24,000 square feet, 26 exam rooms and 10 consult rooms, our Multidisciplinary Clinic is the largest of its kind.
Because families typically have longer visits and need to see more providers, the larger space provides extra comfort for families. Bigger rooms also create more exam space and equipment for providers, alleviating the pressure to turn rooms quickly.
A family lounge provides a relaxed space for families and includes coffee, snacks and three computer workstations.
Adjacent to our family lounge is a space for community partners and foundations to share materials with families.
In partnership with Playtime®, three unique soft play areas were custom-designed and hand-crafted for the Clinic. The play areas feature a castle, aquarium and jungle theme. One of the key benefits of the Multidisciplinary Clinic's Playtime areas is the focus on safety: All elements are soft, squishy and surrounded with padded safety flooring. Also, the unique durable material is nonporous, and the materials and coatings kill bacteria and reduce fungi.
Two large team workrooms feature an adjacent conference room furnished with the latest equipment for telemedicine.
The clinic space was built using "DIRTT" walls. DIRTT, which stands for "Doing it Right This Time,” is a new construction solution that offers customizable, sustainable architectural interiors. The walls are reconfigurable and can easily be refinished.
Two group evaluation/observation spaces help create a welcoming environment to perform pediatric oral feeding observations. The rooms feature unique AV equipment to observe wall patients in a private setting in which the provider and the feeding therapist can communicate and record the sessions.
