Penrose changes clinic name, staffing, adds services

Penrose-St. Francis Health Services has expanded services and changed staffing at its Woodland Park clinic.

The center, known as Langstaff-Brown Urgent Care Center at 41 State Highway 67, will become Penrose Mountain Urgent Care Sept. 1.

The new owners plan to staff the new facility with Team Health, a national emergency services company. Nurse practitioners will be available seven days a week for walk-in urgent care services to children and adults.

New services offered at the clinic will include ultrasound, digital x-ray and outpatient lab services, seven days a week.

“This new model of care provides convenient access for routine and urgent medical needs, but also allows us to tap into the resources at Penrose-St. Francis Health Services for those unique or more critical needs,” said Rebecca Morland, manager of Penrose Mountain Urgent Care. “…Changing our name reinforces our connection with Penrose-St. Francis.”

This is the third time the clinic’s name has changed. St. Francis Hospital founded the original facility in 1982 as the Rampart Range Emergency Center. The name was later changed to Langstaff-Brown urgent Care Center, as a memorial tribute to Dr. Kim Langstaff, a Teller County resident and former chief of emergency medicine at St. Francis, and Pete Brown, a former Woodland Park mayor.

The building will be renamed the Langstaff-Brown Medical Campus and will also house the Colorado Springs Sport and Spine Center. Colorado Springs Health Partners will open an office there Sept. 1.

The urgent care center will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. on weekends. Call (719) 686-0551 for more information.
