Centennial, Colo.-based Centura Health is expected to open its third hospital in Colorado Springs on July 11, according to The Gazette.
The $180 million, 72-bed hospital “hospital of the future” will focus on spine and orthopedic care and feature innovative technologies to support staff and patient care, Bill Lueck, director of new development for Penrose-St. Francis Health Services, told the publication. One such example is that emergency, inpatient and operating rooms will have telehealth capabilities that allow surgeons to consult with other providers during surgery or allow for family visits.
St. Francis Hospital-Interquest will comprise 64 inpatient beds, eight critical care beds, 10 operating rooms with robotic equipment and 30 beds for surgical preparation and recovery. It will also have an emergency department with 16 bays.
The hospital is expected to employ about 400 people.
