COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — UCHealth will invest $85 million in expanding Memorial Hospital North to offer new, advanced services for patients in the Pikes Peak region.

Expected to begin this fall, the project will include a four-story addition that will primarily house women’s and oncology services. Plans also call for expanding the Emergency Department, adding two operating rooms and increasing inpatient beds to 108 with additional room to grow in the future.

In the past two years, inpatient admissions have increased 43 percent at Memorial Hospital North, and the number of outpatient visits has nearly quadrupled as the hospital has added medical services on the campus, according to hospital officials.

The design of the new inpatient addition will complement plans by Children’s Hospital Colorado to build a full-service pediatric hospital on the Memorial Hospital North campus. Both projects are expected to be completed in 2018.
