The expansion of Banner Health Center in Fort Collins, Colo., is now complete. After eight months of construction, the center has doubled in size and will add providers and specialty practices.

Located on the Banner Fort Collins Medical Center campus, the expanded health center officially opens to patients Monday, Sept. 11. The health center will house a total of 24 providers, including primary care and specialty doctors, 12 clinical support staff, RNs and technicians as well as 11 office support staff.

With the original square footage at 7,414, the health center now stands at 14,953 with shelled space for an additional 11,091 square feet for a future phase-three project. With the expansion, the health center has 32 exam rooms and three procedure rooms to accommodate an expected doubling in patient volumes.

In addition to adding four providers to help serve the increasing family practice, internal medicine, OB-GYN and pediatric needs, the health center offers specialty providers in cardiology, pulmonology, urology, general surgery, neurosurgery, gastrointestinal and sleep medicine.
