UCCS names sports-medicine center for El Pomar CEO

The newest building on UCCS — a sports medicine and performance center — will be named in honor of William J. Hybl, according to news from the university.

Hybl, longtime CEO of the El Pomar Foundation, is a local “philanthropic, amateur sports and diplomatic leader,” the university said in making the announcement.

The 72,000-square-foot sports medicine and performance center, still under construction, is one of the four elements of the Colorado Springs City for Champions projects. The others include a U.S. Olympic Committee Museum and Hall of Fame, a new visitors center at the Air Force Academy and a downtown sports and events center. The William J.

UCCS has long term plans to construct a six-building, health and wellness village on campus.
