Parkview Health System and UCHealth have signed a letter of intent for Parkview to join UCHealth in 2023. Both healthcare systems commit to continuing and strengthening the healthcare services offered in Pueblo and throughout Southern Colorado.
UCHealth will invest nearly $200 million into Parkview and the Pueblo community in the coming years while continuing Parkview’s support of nursing and clinical education programs, helping recruit new staff members and stabilizing Parkview’s finances. UCHealth’s investment will include a donation of $5 million to the Parkview Foundation to establish a long-term fund to support patients, the community and the hospital.
UCHealth also plans to help develop advanced treatments and clinical trials in Pueblo, helping patients access the most innovative care and achieve excellent outcomes in the region Parkview serves. Care coordination might also allow more patients from Pueblo and southern Colorado to receive the inpatient and outpatient care they need, closer to home.
Over the coming months, UCHealth and Parkview will complete their final agreement, with an effective date expected in mid-2023.
