FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Colorado State University is planning to build a four-story, $59 million medical center in Fort Collins.

The Coloradoan reports (http://noconow.co/1DEZjy8 ) the CSU System Board of Governors approved the plan Thursday in Denver. Construction at the southeast corner of campus could begin in the fall with a completion goal of late 2016, pending the approval of a financing plan.

The building will house the CSU Health Network, a full-service health center for students and staff. It also will include public health services through a walk-in clinic and a new Columbine Health Systems Center for Healthy Aging.

The medical center is expected to be 113,000 square feet.

Amy Parsons, CSU's vice president for university operations, says the project will combine "all of our medical services under one roof."
