Parkview Medical Center breaks ground on outpatient center

(Pueblo, CO) - Parkview Medical Center will break ground on its new outpatient center in a ceremony in February.

Drs. Wallace Sullivan and Gordon Murley, whose practices made their home in the previous building on the site, were presented with commemorative bricks as part of the celebration.

Construction on the outpatient center is the next major domino in Parkview Medical Center’s master plan and will help pave the way for an expansion of the hospital’s Emergency Department.

The 21,000-square-foot building will give Parkview’s patients and physicians access to a brand-new facility within walking distance of the hospital. It’s eight operating rooms will help alleviate pressure in the hospital  and it also will allow the emergency department to eventually expand with minimal impact to the neighborhood.

Construction is expected to last until early 2018.
