Colorado Springs Population Growth Fuels Hospitals’ Expansion

Three Colorado Springs hospitals have growth plans coming in the near future.

St. Francis Medical Center has admitted patients to its recently opened neonatal intensive care unit this past week.  St. Francis Medical Center’s $102 million expansion project is expected to be completed in early 2019, including several new operating rooms in October and a new emergency room in February.

UCHealth Memorial Hospital North has a $128 million expansion, several new operating rooms and emergency treatment “bays.” expected to be completed early next year.

In early 2019, the newest Children’s Hospital facility in Colorado Springs is expected to open adjacent to Memorial Hospital North. The five-story, $165 million hospital is expected to include a 50-bed neonatal intensive care unit, 48 beds for pediatric surgery and pediatric intensive care and 13 other inpatient beds.
