Where is Fitzsimons Village?
Fitzsimons Village is part of the fastest growing medical campus in the United States. A state-of-the-art, integrated Life Science District on the former Fitzsimons Army Medical Center – located in the heart of Aurora, Colorado – is creating one of the most preeminent and concentrated collaboration of patient care, research, and education centers in the United States. The Life Science District is home to the Anschutz Medical Campus, which includes the University of Colorado Hospital, the University of Colorado Denver's Health Science Schools, and The Children's Hospital. The District will also include the 1.1 million square foot U.S. Veterans Health Administration Hospital that commenced construction in 2010. Over 16,000 people are already employed within the Life Science District with plans for more than 45,000, including jobs in teaching, patient care, basic science research, and biotechnology research and development. Today more than 700,000 patients travel in and out of this hospital complex annually.
