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.
Today’s St. Vincent Hospital: A Team, A Community and an Unceasing Focus on Rural Healthcare
At St. Vincent Hospital and St. Vincent Medical Clinic we believe in caring for you as if you were our family; we believe in being there when you need us; and we believe in providing valued health care services to fit the needs of our community.
Most importantly we believe in you. You are our neighbor, our family member, our friend and the reason we exist to serve Lake County.
In 2019, as St. Vincent Hospital celebrates 140 years of caring, we will exceed expectations by breaking ground on a new, state-of-the-art hospital. The new facility will support and promote the delivery of modern healthcare now and decades into the future. It will directly contribute to improvements in patient care, safety and, privacy, increased medical services, and operational efficiencies.
I close this letter with gratitude. It is our mission and calling to care. I am so thankful to carry out that mission for our Lake County friends and neighbors and work side-by side with our dedicated team.
As always, I am here to serve you in 2019. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have comments or questions.
I wish you a year of health, joy and prosperity.
