GE Johnson and Penrose St.

Francis Health Services topped

out of a large expansion project

at St. Francis Medical Center.

The project comes as the lat-

est installment in a shared his-

spanning nearly 30 years.

The additions to the hospi-

tal include 168,580 square feet

of new construction consisting

of a four-story expansion and

a new garden level that will

feature covered parking and

an emergency medical servic-

“We’ve been working along-

side Penrose St. Francis Health

Services for many years, so the

chance to join them in bring-

ing critical services to northeast

Colorado Springs is incredible,”

said Fred Wolfe, construction

executive for the project. “We

are using the integrated project

delivery method, which allows

us to work much more closely

with all our project partners. It’s

truly a special project to be a

ed the topping out of Munger

Mountain Elementary School.

When complete, MMES will

encompass 78,000 sf and house

nearly 600 students ranging

arrive at this point – and we

couldn’t bemore pleased for the

future of Frasier.”

additional independent living

apartments, a newarts and edu-
