The William J. Hybl Sports Medicine & Performance Center, located on the UCCS campus on Nevada Avenue, will be a revolution in health and human performance. The state-of-the-art facility will translate research into real-world solutions, promoting the concept of "Exercise as Medicine," helping patients with diseases ranging from diabetes to cancer. Three centers of distinction will also be housed within the Hybl Center: the Center for Tactical and Occupational Performance, the Center for Active Individuals with Physical Disabilities and the Center for Human Health & Performance in Extreme Environments. These centers will be the pinnacle of collaboration between UCCS and Centura, combining existing knowledge and research with real-world applications.
The Sports Medicine and Performance Center at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs has the ability to draw out-of-state patients to Colorado Springs for acute sport-related healthcare. The Center will treat 40,000 patients, of which 30% (12,000) are out-of-state. In addition, 14,400 net new out-of-state visitors will accompany patients as they seek the best in athletic healthcare. Because of the nature of the Sports Medicine and Performance Center, these patients and their families will stay longer than traditional visitors.
The UCCS Sports Medicine and Performance Center will bring this concept to Colorado through a concentration of sports medicine, wellness clinics and experts conducting groundbreaking injury-recovery research. The facility will be a key component to the UCCS Health and Wellness Village, which will ultimately include a handicapped-accessible track and field facility. No other community will be able to boast a program like this upon completion: undergrad, grad, and clinical work, all under one roof with intentional "collision and collaboration" spaces meant to facilitate conversation and innovation.
