Howell Helps Revitalize DHHA’s Gipson Eastside Family Health Center
Denver, CO (February 28, 2020) – Howell Construction teamed with TreanorHL in renovating Denver Health & Hospital Authority’s (DHHA) Bernard F. Gipson Sr. Eastside Family Health Center located at 501 East 28th Street—in the heart of the Five Points neighborhood. Named after the first African American surgeon in Denver, the Gipson clinic has been caring for generations of patients since 1966. It is the second oldest U.S. community health center west of the Mississippi dedicated to providing high-quality healthcare for the underserved for the past 53 years.
Although the clinic is suited to provide healthcare services to 500 patients per week, they typically serve 2,000. To keep up with the growing needs of the community, Denver Health hired Howell Construction to revitalize the property. The clinic remained open during the 58,000 square-foot multi-phased renovation. The project scope included modernizing exam and procedure rooms, updating common areas and restrooms, and improving ADA access and sidewalks. Additionally, Howell installed new lights, HVAC systems, roof solar panels, along with flooring, paint, and wall coverings.
“I am proud to have been a part of this important healthcare project and knowing patients, staff and visitors will enjoy their renovated space,” said Todd Berry, Vice President – Howell Construction.
