COLORADO SPRINGS – Construction is finished and the new children’s hospital in Colorado Springs will soon be ready to begin operations.

The hospital is located at Briargate and Austin Bluffs.

It’s the only hospital wholly dedicated to treating children in Southern Colorado so patients don’t have to travel as far to find specialized care.

It comes complete with aesthetics meant to make kids more comfortable, as well as accommodations for patients’ families.

“So it’s colors, it’s materials it’s having dedicated space so they can get away and they can revive and be reenergized,” said Shelbi Lowery from the ARC Pikes Peak Region. “And then it’s having not only the design and then the space but also having the support programs for the kids so they can have the distraction they need to be a kid recognizing that they’re in a hospital.”

The hospital has been in development for three years and is expected to start operations by the middle of this year.
