    Coming Soon!

    Care that's convenient, accessible, consolidated, and right in your community. That’s what Fremont County residents will be able to get come next summer when a new medical office building opens on the campus of St. Thomas More Hospital. The building, being constructed in partnership with Centura Health and The Boldt Company, will house primary care physician offices as well as specialty offices for a wide variety of medical specialists, such as OB/GYN and orthopedics.

    MOB RenderingHelping people stay healthy, get care early when a problem arises, and manage ongoing health issues are the goals of a concept being developed statewide by Centura Health called Colorado Health Neighborhoods. This medical office building will be at the hub of the Fremont County Health Neighborhood. Medical services will be focused on providing preventive care, health screenings and regular checkups, chronic disease management, as well as early diagnosis and treatment.

    Under Construction

    Construction of the new medical office building will kick off with a community groundbreaking ceremony this summer. For this project, St. Thomas More Hospital and Boldt will partner with RTA Architects (RTA), who were also involved in the newly redesigned Birth Center and C-Section suite, as well as the Medical/Surgical nursing unit.

    “This is an exciting time for everyone at St. Thomas More and for our community,” says Sheri Trahern, chief executive officer of St. Thomas More Hospital. “We believe that health care consumers in the communities we serve will prefer to seek care locally at the various physician clinics.”

    Consolidation and Collaboration

    St. Thomas More Physician Group providers are currently in multiple locations on Sell Avenue, Phay Avenue, Yale Place, and Ohio Avenue. With the new multispecialty facility, most of these providers will be under one roof. The consolidation will allow for:

    • Significantly improved collaboration between different types of physicians on patient care
    • Increased efficiency with practice operations
    • Improved patient flow

    Patients will enjoy an intentionally created healing environment inside the building. Trahern hopes that this new environment also will be attractive to prospective physicians and support teams.

    “Our research has shown that having a medical office building will enhance our recruitment efforts in both primary and specialty care,” she says.
