AURORA, CO-Children’s Hospital has chosen Robert Frasca of the Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Partnership to design its new hospital at the Fitzsimons campus here. ZFG, based in Portland, OR, was chosen from seven other prominent firms.

Ground will be broken on the new hospital in 2003, when Children’s will begin its move from Downtown Denver, where it has been since 1908.

ZFG has designed children’s hospitals in Portland and Los Angeles.

“ZGF’s proposal emphasized an ethic for honoring the quality of the environment,” says Denise Brown, vice president for Campus Development at Children’s. “They understand the diverse demands in the complex TCH community and expressed a commitment to the intrinsic values of the people who will occupy the buildings.”

“We are extremely pleased with the opportunity to work with The Children’s Hospital, and feel a strong affinity for the importance of the mission of Children’s and the people carrying out that mission,” says Frasca. “It makes for a unique fit between what we want to do as architects and the opportunity to enhance an institution that is already recognized as one of the top in the country.”

Children’s main hospital currently operates out of eight adjacent buildings on its main campus at 1056 E. 19th Ave.
