The new Gray’s Peak Health Care Careers Center (HCCC) is located on the Front Range Community College (FRCC) Larimer Campus, and consolidates all of the College’s health sciences programs into one state-of-the-art-facility offering a multi-disciplinary healthcare curriculum to address key healthcare workforce needs in Northern Colorado.
The HCCC houses the following programs: Registered and Licensed Practical Nursing, Certified Nurse Aide, Phlebotomy, Medical Assisting, Medical Careers Exploration, Emergency Medical Services, Dental Assisting, Holistic Health, and Health and Wellness. The Center also includes the Front Range Dental Clinic, staffed by licensed dentists and dental hygienists, and offers additional clinical experience to students enrolled in the Dental Assisting program.
The new building anchors the northwest corner of the campus, adjacent to a busy intersection, and provides increased visibility to the community. FRCC’s goal is to have the HCCC building provide a more welcoming, transparent face to the community. The building design includes a high profile atrium at the core of the building that reaches out toward the community and pulls students into the building. It will accommodate campus events, as well as provide a comfortable community space for students. HCM teamed with Haselden Construction to provide an integrated design/build delivery approach for the design and construction of the project in order to optimize the schedule and budget.
