Mountain Modern Gets Clinical in the Vail Valley

Vail Health, located in the heart of Vail, Colorado, is undertaking a major renovation and expansion to improve healthcare services for the residents of Eagle County and visitors from around the globe seeking world-class care. The 360,000 square foot East Wing Addition replaces the current emergency department, imaging department, outpatient orthopedic and physical therapy clinics, and expand outpatient surgical needs. Facility improvements include a new central utility plant, enclosed loading dock, rooftop helistop, two ambulance garages, and five-stories of underground parking, addressing the existing facility’s shortage of parking for patients and staff. Typical of the comprehensive design process practiced by Davis Partnership, our team studied the site to understand how this expansion would affect upcoming development; as future needs require Vail Health to replace aging building infrastructure at the densely populated site. The design team also considered the relocation of departments, in either vacated space or future floors created in the new East Wing Addition. This offered Vail Health a clear vision for how growth supports the needs of the patients, visitors, staff and physicians in the Vail Valley, now and in the future. The East Wing design takes advantage of spectacular mountain views through its grand lobby and adjacent outdoor terrace. The exterior design responds to the architecture and materials of the existing campus and environment while embracing a modern appeal. The East Wing interior design aligns with Vail Health’s commitment to the patient and visitor experience with warm and inviting public areas, improved wayfinding, and state-of-the-art clinical spaces. This exciting addition supports Vail Health’s vision for delivering superior health services for many years to come.
