UCCS William J. Hybl Sports Medicine & Performance Center

Colorado Springs, Colorado

"I truly believe the center will be a one-of-a-kind facility in the nation, if not the world.”

Venkat Reddy, Chancellor, The University of Colorado Colorado Springs

Why

Connecting through experience of place.

RTA teamed with HOK and JE Dunn to develop a program plan and design for the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) William J. Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center. The Hybl Center is a partnership between UCCS and Penrose-St. Francis Health Services/Centura Health. The facility integrates medical care, research, performance, instruction, and patient education into a 104,634 SF state-of-the-art center. It provides a unique multidisciplinary academic environment, with education and research opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students, that combines academic instruction and clinical practice.

How

Ever curious. Ever learning. Ever improving.

The program document and design for this high-profile project were developed in close collaboration with project stakeholders including Penrose-St. Francis and Centura Health staff and UCCS performance research faculty. A primary goal of the design was to promote collaborative interaction among staff, students, researchers, physicians, and faculty. Sustainability was also a focus of the design, and the facility is pursuing LEED Gold certification.

What

Purposeful, engaging solutions.

Almost half of the building square footage is set aside for medical care, physical therapy and rehab, and sports performance training. The rest is used for an anatomy/physio lab, research labs, lecture halls, a nutrition lab, and classrooms as well as administrative space for faculty and staff. The new facility serves up to 1,400 students per day and includes office space for 45 faculty. Almost half of the building square footage is set aside for medical care, physical therapy and rehab, and sports performance training.
