Penrose St. Francis Health Services and GE Johnson joined the community in celebrating the latest installment in the large expansion project at St. Francis.
The additions to the hospital will include 168,580 square feet of new construction with a four-story expansion and new garden level featuring covered parking and an Emergency Medical Services lounge. A new emergency department will be located on the first floor, the second floor will have three new operating rooms, support space and additional shell space for future expansion.
The third floor will house a wellness garden, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit expansion, an ante partum rooms. The fourth floor will remain an area for mechanical space.
“We’ve been working alongside Penrose St. Francis Health Services for many years, so the chance to join them in bringing critical services to Northeast Colorado Springs is incredible,” says Fred Wolfe, construction executive for the project, “We are using the integrated project delivery method, which allows us to work much more closely with all our project partners. It’s truly a special project to be a part of.”
The celebratory ceremony welcomed all those involved in looking forward to the completion of the building. The expansion broke ground in May of this year, with expected completion in early 2019.
