St. Vincent Hospital serves the rural area of Lake County and North America’s highest city of Leadville, Colorado. In 1879 the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, Kansas opened Leadville’s hospital to care for the hardscrabble miners that were drawn to the community. Now celebrating 139 years, St. Vincent Hospital continues the tradition of caring for the residents and visitors of Lake County and surrounding areas.
Approximately two years have passed since we reopened our inpatient services at St. Vincent Hospital.
We knew patient beds were needed. And we were right.
With this month’s message I’m delighted to emphasize that once again, we’re solidly engaged in our core foundational work: caring for the people of Leadville and Lake County. St. Vincent Hospital and Medical Clinic are staffed by a busy, dedicated team of individuals who are here to serve our community’s medical needs.
In March, we welcomed five separate swing bed admissions, along with an average of two inpatient stays per day. Our increased patient volumes are evident in every department.
We’ve recently expanded our physical therapy department so that we can meet the demands of our patients and do our part to help keep you active. Meet the PT team at our open house in June; look for event details soon.
Construction of the new hospital will begin this summer. In the near term, the project team is focusing on in-depth analysis of building and medical equipment cost estimates.
My heartfelt thanks for your continued partnership and support.
It’s a new day. And St. Vincent Hospital is here to stay.
