UCHealth Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute (RMLEI), located in the Sue Anschutz-Rogers Eye Center on the Anschutz Medical Campus was originally opened in 2002 in a new 47,000 SF building. A 2015 expansion added a new entry, and an additional two floors totaling 85,000 SF and renovating 10,000 SF of the original building. In 2019, planning began for a 40,000 SF renovation and buildout of shell space to further expand the Eye Center. Completed in 2021, it is now one of the largest eye centers in the country, offering the highest level of treatment for any eyesight condition, as well as clinical research and training.
The new expansion includes a conference center, modern collaborative open work areas, flexible offices, and additional exam rooms, diagnostic, and treatment spaces.
