Penrose-St. Francis Holds Topping-Out Ceremony for New Medical Center

Work at the construction site for the new St. Francis Medical Center, Colorado Springs, Colo., paused on February 16 as the final steel beam of the new building was raised into place. Employees and guests of Penrose-St. Francis Health Services had the opportunity to sign the beam, which was on display in the lobby of the medical office building at Penrose Community Hospital, before it was put in place. Construction of the new, 350,000-square-foot, full-service medical center is on schedule, with a grand opening to take place August 8, 2008.
