REUNION — Officials from Platte Valley Medical Center, the city of Commerce City and BVB General Contractors participated in a groundbreaking ceremony March 19 to kick off construction for Platte Valley Medical Center’s planed medical facility in Reunion.


The facility, which will be in the Reunion Marketplace at the corner of 104th Avenue and Chambers Road, is planned as an 11,800-square-foot building that will hold four medical practices.


CEO John Hicks said those practices would include family practice, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and internal medicine and that residents would have access to them “just moments away from their homes.”

Commerce City Mayor Sean Ford said the new facility is going to be a key piece of the community for residents who need medical service. He said over the past decade, Commerce City has been among the fastest growing cities in the nation, and with the passage of Issue 2K in last November’s elections, Tower Road will become a four-lane road, state Highway 2 will become a four-lane road from 72nd Avenue to Interstate 75, three city parks will be built along with a new recreation center. 

“It all starts tying together. We’re creating a great, beautiful community,” he said. “So thank you on behalf of the city council and on behalf of the residents of Commerce City, we want to welcome Platte Valley Medical Center to our community. We think it will be a great addition and we need to make sure we support them being here.”

BVB General Contractors CEO James Vigesaa said it’s a pleasure to be able to build the medical office in Reunion.

“BVB and Platte Valley hospital have worked together on many other projects and it’s great to see this continuing on this project,” he said. “Don’t blink because the building is going to appear and we’re going to be coming back here for a ribbon cutting in the fall.”
