Penrose-YMCA to break ground in Tri-Lakes

174186054Penrose-St. Francis Health Services, the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region and The Boldt Company will break ground for the new Tri-Lakes Community Health Village on Jan. 27.

Located at 17250 Jackson Creek Parkway in Monument, the Community Health Village will include a 52,000-square-foot outpatient facility that will be attached to the Tri-Lakes YMCA, the Pikes Peak region’s northernmost YMCA location.

In addition to the existing services offered at the YMCA Family Center, the Community Health Village will include urgent care, primary care, rehab, occupational medicine, imaging, a whole host of specialty services, comprehensive wellness services, and a market place, according to a news release.

Construction is expected to be completed by fall of 2014.

The Boldt Company will be owner and developer of the outpatient center and the shared lobby. The Boldt Company also initially brought together Penrose-St. Francis and the YMCA to discuss the collaboration.

“We are pleased to be stepping up to the plate with Penrose St-Francis to create a new model of health care for our community that embraces a holistic approach by providing a full circle of care,” said Dan Dummermuth, president and CEO of  YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region.

“It may sound counterintuitive, but as a true health care system, our goal is to keep people healthy and out of hospitals, utilizing them most appropriately for those life events that require the scale and proportions a hospital can provide,” said Margaret Sabin, president and CEO of Penrose-St. Francis.

“We are supporting that goal by investing in programs and services such as the community health village to keep people healthy.”

  1. The YMCA is a non profit organization, which does not pay any property taxes which support schools, fire departments, libraries, and city services, though they collect a lot in fees to pay for their beautiful buildings. I assume the Boldt company is a for profit developer, how much of this facility will be taxed?

    All of the other area private health clubs, gyms, and coffee shops compete for clientele, but pay taxes through rents or ownership.
