Earlier in the month, UCHealth Broomfield Hospital held its official ribbon cutting and even the Broomfield High School band was in attendance to mark the occasion! Although open for a number of months prior, this was an opportunity to invite various stakeholders to celebrate a first in Broomfield’s history.
Located at 11820 Destination Dr., near Highway 36 and Wadsworth Boulevard, UCHealth Broomfield Hospital 18-room facility has three operating suites, a four-bed intensive care unit, an outpatient surgery center, lab and 24-hour emergency department. There is however significant room for growth as demand increases with the building eventually able to house 50 inpatient beds. Although carrying the UCHealth moniker, the new Broomfield Hospital is operated through a partnership with Adeptus Health based out of Texas.
Currently the hospital employs 125 people although that number is anticipated to grow as more patients are seen. Just the week before the Joint Commission certified the new hospital, permitting the freestanding ER rooms to accept Medicare, Medicaid and Tricare patients.
The ribbon cutting proved to be a very jubilant affair with the aforementioned High School Band and words from Mayor Randy Ahrens. UCHealth was even kind enough to write a generous $5,000 check to the High School to thank them for their participation. Toward the tail-end of the festivities attendees were given the opportunity to tour the facility which provided a sneak peak of the 64-slice CT scanner, on-site pharmacy and impressive dining options.
We are excited to welcome UCHealth Broomfield Hospital and look forward to watching them grow as a major health provider in our community.
