Turner Construction Pays It Forward, Donates $100,000 to Outpatient Medical Center

August 11, 2021

When Turner Construction won the bid to build the Outpatient Medical Center (OMC), they launched into planning and construction with a clear goal in mind: to build a place that all patients, no matter their socio-economic status, would be proud to go to for care.

“Denver Health is important to us [because] your commitment to the underserved aligns well with our mission and culture of supporting underrepresented, diverse groups,” said Scott Bestos, General Manager of Turner Construction. “Being a shepherd of understanding and empathy to help others aligned well for us.”

The alignment in missions prompted Turner Construction to take their involvement one step further by donating $100,000 to projects and equipment within the Outpatient Medical Center.

The Outpatient Medical Center already stands as a representation of high-quality health care for all community members. The seven-story, 293,000 square foot building is beautifully constructed, with colorful artwork on each floor, private patient rooms, and high-tech equipment that demonstrates Denver Health’s commitment to providing patients with top-notch care. Turner Construction’s generous donation enhances all that the OMC already offers and strengthens Denver Health’s ability to serve.

And already, the OMC is making a substantial impact in our mission to strengthen the root sources of health and well-being. Since its opening in early 2021, the Outpatient Medical Center has provided over 30,000 patient visits, with 12,212 of those occurring in May alone.

We sincerely thank Turner Construction for their investment in the people of Denver by constructing such a beautiful building, and to their continued commitment to Denver Health through philanthropy.
