University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
East of Downtown Denver in the town of Aurora is the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, home of the Children’s Hospital Colorado and the University of Colorado Hospital. Visitors to the campus will also discover the Anschutz Medical Center for Health and Wellness where the country’s top researchers and physicians administer the health-related services that patients seek to stay fit, lose weight and improve the quality of their lives.
Philip Anschutz, Colorado entrepreneur and philanthropist, contributed over $100,000,000 to help the University of Colorado School of Medicine construct what is now known as the largest academic health center in the Rocky Mountain region. Today, the Anschutz Denver Campus offers top rated education in medicine, dentistry, nursing and pharmacy as well as degrees in public health and the biological and biomedical sciences.
As one of the newest and most impressive medical facilities in the country with one-of-a-kind opportunities for research and patient care, the University of Colorado Anschutz Campus has put Denver on the map as a hub for world renowned health education.
