UCHealth Grandview Hospital opens, offering patients in Colorado Springs region access to advanced care, close to home

January 23rd, 2017

Colorado’s newest hospital, UCHealth Grandview Hospital, is now open and providing advanced, community-focused care with highly skilled and experienced physicians and nurses.

The Joint Commission, an independent organization that evaluates and accredits healthcare facilities nationwide, has certified the new hospital, a step that also allows all four freestanding UCHealth Emergency Room locations in the region – three in Colorado Springs and one in Fountain – to now accept Medicare, Medicaid and Tricare patients.

“UCHealth Grandview Hospital was designed to provide personalized service and care similar to a nice hotel,” said President and CEO Derek Rushing. “Our warm, community atmosphere, combined with the highest quality and most advanced medical care, will help ensure our patients receive the very best medical outcomes and are able to go home as soon as possible.”

The hospital is opening with:

  • 18 spacious, private, inpatient rooms
  • Three advanced operating suites for general and orthopedic surgeries, such as appendectomies and joint reconstruction
  • Four-bed intensive care unit
  • High-quality laboratory services
  • 24/7 emergency department staffed by board-certified emergency medicine physicians
  • Comprehensive outpatient surgical center
  • Advanced imaging technology
  • 24/7 respiratory therapy techs

“UCHealth is nationally recognized for providing the highest quality care along with advanced treatments including clinical trials through our partnership with the University of Colorado School of Medicine,” said Dr. Richard Zane, UCHealth’s Executive Director of Emergency Services and Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the CU School of Medicine. “UCHealth Grandview Hospital will continue that tradition of excellence in this comfortable and convenient location.”

Amenities like free Wi-Fi, a play area for children, a coffee station and comfortable waiting areas will help patients and visitors feel welcome.

UCHealth Grandview Hospital is helping to address Colorado’s need for improved access to emergency medical care with this new hospital as well as with freestanding UCHealth Emergency Rooms located in the Pikes Peak region. The American College of Emergency Physicians gave the state of Colorado a D+ grade for access to emergency care in 2014 on their Emergency Medicine Report Card. This report shows the need for increased access to emergency medicine, not just in Colorado, but also across the nation.

The four UCHealth Emergency Room facilities in the region that now accept Medicare, Medicaid and Tricare are located at:

13510 Meadowgrass Drive, Colorado Springs
2770 N Powers Blvd., Colorado Springs
3790 E. Woodmen Road, Colorado Springs
7890 Fountain Mesa Road, Fountain

UCHealth Grandview Hospital is operated through a partnership with Adeptus Health, a patient-centered health care organization dedicated to expanding access to the highest quality emergency medical care.
