Pagosa Critical Access Hospital Grand Opening

Real Estate Agent with Associated Brokers Of Pagosa

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.

congratulations on getting a new hospital!  I hope you never have to use it.  But it's a comfort to know it's there.

Chris, we got our own hospital a year or so ago too, and it is great.  I wrote a post about it on my outside blog, and I now get lots of people calling my number thinking they are getting the hospital!  Apparently when you google the name of the hospital, my post with my contact info comes up.  I put the hospital's phone number in the post, but they have to click on the link in their search results to find it and they dont' always do that.  At least my post gets read!

I have experienced the same scenario already. I wrote a short article about 6 months ago. I once had an equipment installer call me from Oklahoma, wondering who he needed to talk to!
