Health sciences receives donation from ICON Eyecare

ICON Eyecare, a Denver-based surgical and medical eye care provider, presented Colorado Mesa University with a ceremonial check on Feb. 15. The check represented a $10,000 donation the eye care specialists made to the university’s health sciences department.

The money will be used towards the remodel of the former Community Hospital Medical Plaza, soon to be the home of the health sciences department.

The future home of the health sciences department will include classrooms, computer labs, an X-ray lab, observation rooms, the latest medical technologies, critical care simulation labs, clinical labs, a student resource room and post-clinical conference rooms. Once the remodel and expansion is completed, the department will occupy more than 35,000 square feet.

“The donation is being made on behalf of our entire care team on the Western Slope in an effort to invest in the surgical talent of the greater Grand Junction region. As longterm members of this great community, we are committed to the development of the school’s new surgical tech program and look forward to helping more students find opportunities at our great practice,” said Rick Anderson, OD, CEO of ICON Eyecare.

“Generous gifts such as these address critical space requirements and will advance CMU health sciences programs as well as health care in the Grand Valley. We are very grateful to the ICON Eyecare team for stepping up during this exciting expansion,” said Peggy Lamm, CEO and vice president of development at CMU.
