The much anticipated Pagosa Mountain Hospital Critical Access facility is having it's Grand Opening on Saturday, January 5th 2008. The ribbon cutting at 2:00 PM will kick start the opening of the new facility to Pagosa area residents.
The hospital has been completed earlier than scheduled, on budget and with no increase in mill levy thanks to generous private and community donations and fund-raising efforts.
Beginning Monday January 7th, there will be 24/7 Emergency Room services, 11 private inpatient hospital rooms for routine nursing care, a full-time laboratory, CT digitized scanning, radiology, EKG and EEG services, and much more. Future services will be added in an effort to continue to enhance and grow the features and services that the hospital will provide.
This is a wonderful thing for Pagosa residents in their personal lives as well as a crucial piece of the puzzle in supporting our economic growth.The Pagosa Real estate market stability is just one of the benefactors. Many families and seniors are more willing to live full time in Pagosa with a solid medical support structure that adds to an already experienced Dr. and specialist base that we have in place. Up until now the closest ER or critical access facility is in Durango, a one hour drive from Pagosa Springs.
