Building costs balloon for Centura hospital; opening delayed till next year

The opening of Centennial, Colo.-based Centura Health's new hospital has been delayed and will carry a higher price tag, The Gazette reported April 4.

Because of supply chain disruptions, the hospital's opening date has been pushed back until July 2023, and the cost of building has increased from $150 million to almost $170 million, according to the report.

Originally named St. Clare Hospital, the Colorado Springs facility will now be called St. Francis Hospital-Interquest, a name that dates to a hospital built in the city in 1887.

The facility is part of Centura's $2 billion expansion over five years, which includes hospitals in Aurora, Colo., Fort Morgan, Colo., and Dodge City, Kan. The hospital will include 64 inpatient beds, eight critical care beds, a 14-bed emergency department, 10 operating rooms and 30 beds for surgical preparation and recovery.
