Vail Health East Wing Addition
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, an 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.
Davis Partnership studied the site to understand how this immediate expansion would affect future development; as Vail Health needed to consider how to replace aging building infrastructure at the densely populated site along with the future relocation of departments. The result of our work offers Vail Health a clear vision for how to support the needs of the patients, visitors, staff and physicians in the Vail Valley, now and in the future.
The East Wing Addition 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 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 project is currently under construction and is anticipated to support Vail Health’s vision for delivering superior health services beginning the Winter of 2020.
