UCHealth to announce plans to invest $85 million in the health of the Pikes Peak region through a major expansion at Memorial Hospital North, offering new, advanced services for patients.
This expansion will include a four-story addition that will primarily house women’s and oncology services - is expected to occur this fall. Plans also call for expanding the Emergency Department, adding two operating rooms and increasing inpatient beds to 108 with additional room to grow in the future.
The design of the new inpatient addition will complement plans by Children’s Hospital Colorado to build a full-service pediatric hospital on the Memorial Hospital North campus. The proximity of the hospitals will ensure the community has access to the very best adult and pediatric care on the same health campus. Both the Memorial and Children’s projects are expected to be completed in 2018.
The expansion plans come on the heels of other significant improvements within the last year at Memorial Hospital North: Cardiac services were expanded via a new, state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization lab and cardiac clinic, and oncology services grew with the addition of a radiation oncology treatment center and chemotherapy infusion. The medical center also was designated as a Level III trauma center.
