RSVP by April 28 to our Annex Renovation Celebration
ACC is expanding its healthcare programming with the creation of the ACC Health Innovation Center. The Health Innovation Center will allow ACC to expand critical programming to address shortages in the healthcare industry workforce. The Center will serve residents and healthcare industry partners throughout Arapahoe and Douglas counties through the preparation of available local talent - with a focus on simulated and active-learning experiences - to increase the pool of well-trained candidates to fill high-growth, high-demand healthcare jobs in our south metro Denver communities. This integrated instructional model, will improve collaboration and dialogue between healthcare disciplines while preparing students to better serve patients as they transition between local providers. The Health Innovation Center's simulated education spaces will be used across all of ACC's health programs and specialties.
The Annex opened in 1975 and houses ACC's healthcare programs.
In the Spring of 2017, ACC received approval from the Colorado Commission on Higher Education for its Facility Master Plan for the college’s campuses. The outcome provides a plan to guide the college for five years of facility planning to support the college's mission. The approval utilizes guidelines by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education, and the Colorado Department of Higher Education and includes information from the November 2010 Master Plan and facility audits.
Our first goal in this plan was the Sturm Collaboration Campus in Castle Rock which we opened in 2019. Our second goal, the renovation of the Annex. Workshops began on August 17, 2017, with faculty, program directors, students, and campus leadership. From there workshops, meetings and initial planning continued until a final draft review on January 15, 2018. Our final proposal was then submitted to the Colorado Capital Development Committee, and we submitted this plan each year for funding until it was finally approved in the Fall of 2021.
As you know, a lot has happened since 2017. The biggest change is the significant increase in the cost to build our planned vision. What has not changed are our goals to improve the Annex making it a Healthcare Innovation Center. The renovation of our Annex building and the development of the ACC Health Innovation Center is central to our mission of preparing students for academic and career success while serving our communities now and in the future through the development of a talented healthcare workforce.

Arapahoe County Funds
Arapahoe County provided ACC with $3,500,000 in an ARPA Subrecipient Grant. The entirety of these funds will be applied to construction services to build out the Health Innovation Simulation Center.
HEERF (Higher Education Emergency Relief) Funds
HEERF funds in the amount of $1,145,000 will be used for HVAC upgrades to improve indoor air quality that will replace two existing rooftop units and add controls that will enable the spaces to be monitored for air quality and adjust the intake of outdoor air.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a question? You can ask us using our
Digital Suggestion Box
What is happening to the Automotive Department?
Nothing. Our Automotive Technology programs will remain right where they are. This area of the Annex has already received updated sprinkler and fire systems. There will be no disruption to classes. Students may need to temporarily access the area at the Automotive garages on the East Side of the Annex building.
What accommodations will be upgraded in the remodel?
We will be adding an elevator, correcting the ramps on the North and South entrances of the first floor and adding additional ADA restrooms and shower rooms.
Why are students and staff not a part of this process?
The process for remodeling the Annex started in 2017 as a part of ACC's Five Year Master Plan. Students, faculty and staff were a part of workshops to define our plan. Over time, as we have awaited for funding, students, faculty and staff have changed so, this feels new to many. Please review the ACC Health Integration Renovation Program Plan for our starting timeline and process. Many faculty, staff, and advisory groups have been a part of the recent plans for the renovation that began in May 2022. The Annex Strategic working groups are made up of ACC faculty and staff experts who take into account our current and future students, our current and future needs, and how we will execute our plans with the least amount of disruption. As we get closer to the phase where finishes and furniture are to be determined, students and staff will be invited to participate in the decision process.
What is happening in the Fitness Center?
We have worked hard to develop a compromise that will maintain the integrity of the Fitness Center and give us the ability to grow. For this phase of the project, we will be adding ADA compliant shower rooms only. Access to the Fitness Center may require entry from the West side of the building during the first floor construction. Some space may be affected with the need of an emergency exit from the main area of the Annex first floor through the Fitness Center.
