UCHealth has opened Grandview Medical Center in Colorado Springs, a convenient, easy-to-access medical building that’s a stone’s throw from Grandview Hospital, located just off Interstate 25 near Costco on the city’s northwest side.
The new building complements Grandview Hospital, a hub for world class orthopedic surgery, acute care, and a 24/7 emergency room. Grandview Medical Center brings specialists and primary care doctors to the Grandview campus. The hospital was recently recognized by the Joint Commission as Colorado’s first and only designated hip and joint replacement Center of Excellence (COE).
“The addition of the Grandview Medical Center enables our patients to receive a coordinated, patient-centric experience at a single location that includes primary and specialty care, advanced imaging capabilities and therapy services,” said Andrew Ritchie, chief administrative officer for Grandview Hospital.
The features of the Grandview Medical Center
The three-story, 65,000-square-foot building features:
- An orthopedic clinic and a free-standing imaging center with the latest technology on its first floor.
- Diagnostic X-ray, MRI, CT, ultrasound, and DEXA bone density scanning. A standing CT machine, one of the first in the country, completes images while a patient bears weight on an injured joint.
- Primary care; sports medicine; a multi-disciplinary clinic with specialists in cardiology, endocrinology, rheumatology, neurology, and allergy and immunology; and laboratory services.
- Enhanced rehabilitation services: 6,000-square-feet of space with spectacular views of Pikes Peak, where patients receive physical, speech and occupational therapy for a myriad of medical needs.
Grandview is a one-stop campus with no-hassle parking and easy access to clinics and services. Grandview’s orthopedic surgeons specialize in all types of surgeries for hand, shoulder, hip, knee, foot and ankle and other sports-related injuries.
“With primary care, imagining, laboratory and rehabilitation services in one place, patients don’t have to waste time traveling across town for their needs,” Ritchie said. “The Grandview campus is a special asset to the Colorado Springs community bringing all these orthopedic and sports-related capabilities together in one convenient location. We are really proud to be southern Colorado’s first hospital focused on orthopedic care.”
A rehabilitation center with a view
On the third floor of the Grandview Medical Center, a new rehabilitation center for patients who need rehabilitation is open. The outpatient rehabilitation program, which benefits those who need to restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain and prevent or limit disabilities, offers:
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Speech therapy
Specialized programs include:
- Ergonomic consultations
- Fitness training
- Hand therapy
- Incontinence treatment
- Lymphedema management
- Manual therapy
- Trigger point dry needling
- Vestibular therapy and fall prevention
- Vital stimulation treatment for dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)
Joe Foecking, director of rehabilitation services for UCHealth Memorial Hospital, said that “The center is focused on specialty programming to help people restore function and ability. Improving access to medical care for patients in southern Colorado is our goal — and we’re thrilled to be able to work alongside our orthopedic colleagues creating a focused plan for rehabilitation and recovery for patients who visit the UCHealth Grandview campus.”
“We’re providing access to primary care, specialists, a hospital, an emergency department and outpatient therapy in a very convenient place,” Ritchie said. “We know that parking at Grandview is great; there are no parking challenges. And for someone who is receiving rehabilitation or has had an orthopedic injury, you could not ask for a more convenient one-stop location here in the Springs.”
