University Physicians, Inc. | Lilly Marks, Executive Director



ocated at a main entry to Denver’s redeveloped Stapleton neighborhood, this two-story Medical Office Building adheres to the area’s stringent design guidelines while projecting a unique identity. Flexible floor plates comfortably accommodate variously sized medical clinics. The facility is LEED Gold Certified through the USGBC’s Core and Shell program. Some of the sustainable design strategies involved include low-water landscaping, reduced heat island paving materials, waterless urinals, optimization of energy performance, construction waste recycling, use of renewable and recycled materials, and enhanced environmental air quality strategies. Designed to resemble two separate buildings, this facility is part of the creation of a Healthcare Village. This design brings the scale of the building down, giving the Village a more neighborhood appeal.

his new Denver Hospice Care Center provides a state of the art, in-patient care facility serving the Denver area.

The 35,000 square foot care center will ensure a greater quality of life for patients with complex medical needs. Located in the Lowry redevelopment neighborhood, the care center comfortably fits into this quiet neighborhood setting. With 24 private rooms, the new care center is expected to serve approximately 1,500 patients per year, that are in need of critical care that can no longer be provided in their home. Each room is provided with patio access and garden views, as well as access to a host of patient and family support spaces. The exterior design is highlighted with the spiritual center, integrated into an exterior garden. The sloping roof forms and adjacent tower reach to the sky in a symbolic gesture to the heavens.

his project involves the design of a Hospital Simulation Lab for the Nursing School totaling 3,500 square feet of Richardson Hall, one of the original buildings on the Adams State College campus. Existing classroom and administration space was converted into four simulated hospital patient rooms, each supporting a different model of care including a neonatal nursery, medical/surgery, pediatrics, and labor/delivery/recovery/postpartum (LDRP) rooms. The program also includes a nurse station and associated support spaces in a hospital care environment. The project also includes the relocation of administrative staff to the third level of the existing building.

Therapeutic, healthful, green, and sustainable. Green design is inherently therapeutic and leads to the restoration, maintenance, and optimization of individual, community, and global health. It is achieved through reduction of toxic materials, optimization of indoor air quality, and connections to nature and daylight. Green facilities embrace “reduce, reuse, recycle,� and the separation and reprocessing of natural and technological waste.

Welcoming, comfortable, and delightful. Healthcare facilities should be physically welcoming and promote comfort for patients, family, and staff. It should be easy to find and access, warm and friendly. Staff and providers who spend large amounts of time in the facilities should find it a pleasant, safe, and low-stress workplace.

Operationally efficient and effective. Design must support optimal work flow, accommodate state-of-theart technologies, and allow flexible delivery of service. Co-location of departments and services encourages interdisciplinary interaction and synergy. Design should help the organization do more, better, with fewer human and financial resources, thereby optimizing both operations and patient outcomes.

Accommodating. The physical infrastructure should be adaptable to rapid advances in technology and emerging healthcare practices to prevent premature obsolescence. A state-of the-art delivery of care facility must be able to evolve without disruption of operations as new services are implemented.

MOA ARCHITECTURE was founded in 1981, with the idea that excellent design skills should be complemented by equally strong technical execution and project delivery. Thirty years later, MOA is synonymous with well-designed projects that are responsive to programs and sensitive to budget constraints. We have 30 employees – including 20 licensed architects and 20 LEED APs – between our offices in Denver, Colorado and Casper, Wyoming. MOA’s expertise includes planning and design for healthcare, office, mixed-use and retail, education, and industrial projects. We’ve successfully completed more than 25 million cumulative square feet of facilities at a total construction cost of more than $1.7 billion.
