Residents of the growing Sterling Ranch community south of Chatfield State Park now have access to health services close to home, with the opening of UCHealth Sterling Ranch Medical Center, near the intersection of Titan Road and Santa Fe Drive. Family medicine physician Dr. Kalindi A. Batra will lead a staff of 10 health care providers, including a nurse practitioner, physical therapist and physician assistants. The clinic staff will offer primary care, urgent care, physical therapy and occupational medicine.

“Compassion and listening skills are essential in providing great patient care,” said Dr. Batra. “I work to connect with patients by actively listening and engaging communication to help promote individualized and personal care. A team approach offers the best care – and the most important person on the team is the patient.”

Located in Sterling Ranch Civic Center, the clinic is the only health care facility within the residential community and not far from UCHealth Highlands Ranch Hospital, currently under construction near Lucent Boulevard and C-470 and set to open in Spring 2019. Once open, the full-service hospital will provide Sterling Ranch Medical Center patients a seamless transition of care to advanced cardiac services, a Level III trauma center and emergency department, an intensive care unit and a Birth Center that includes C-section operating rooms and a Level III NICU.

“UCHealth is pleased to bring innovative health services to this community and beyond, a fast-growing part of the state that has been largely underserved,” said Diane Cookson, president and CEO of UCHealth Highlands Ranch Hospital. “A long-term relationship with a primary care provider, close to home, is important to one’s overall health, and the combination of services offered at Sterling Ranch Medical Center provides options for patients to receive quality care and the ability to be referred to a specialist when needed.”

UCHealth Sterling Ranch Medical Center will celebrate its opening with an all-ages Wiffle Ball Challenge with great prizes from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, at Sterling Ranch Community Park. Swing for the fences, and you could walk away with autographed merchandise. Also enjoy free food from food trucks, wiffle ball sets and more.

“With nearly 200 families now living in our community, and a strong demand for health care in surrounding communities, we couldn’t be more thrilled for UCHealth Sterling Ranch Medical Center to open,” said Harold Smethills, one of the founding visionaries of the Sterling Ranch development. “Our residents are now able to access leading-edge health care right in their backyard with UCHealth’s team of clinicians now in place. This team is also helping to connect our residents to their community, and UCHealth is shaping the inclusive, welcoming atmosphere of our neighborhoods in a new way.”

Sterling Ranch is a master-planned community in northwest Douglas County that is ultimately expected to have 12,000 homes with approximately 33,000 residents. Plans include the ultimate incorporation of five elementary schools, a middle school, a high school, three neighborhood parks, and two million square feet of commercial space upon full buildout, which is expected to take 20 years.
