“Where the skies are blue, the mountains are green, and the financial statements are always black,” is one apt description of El Paso County and the Colorado Springs metropolitan area. Little wonder that Money magazine selected Colorado Springs as the top “big city” in which to live. This east-central county is about twice the side of the state of Rhode Island, covering nearly 2,200 square miles of scenic beauty. The western portion is extremely mountainous, and the eastern part is prairie land where dairy cows and beef cattle are the main source of ranchers’ income. Contrasting with this rural setting, the vibrant city of Colorado Springs introduces everything from nightlife and regional shopping to important institutions of higher education.
State-of-the-art healthcare is anchored in part by the Penrose-St. Francis Health Services, a quality health system that provides a wide variety of primary care, secondary care, acute care, tertiary care, and outpatient services to residents of the region. The 300-bed Penrose Hospital offers comprehensive care with an emphasis on elective and outpatient care. From its establishment in 1890 as a tuberculosis sanatorium, the hospital has evolved into a major health treatment and referral center. Penrose Community Hospital specializes in short-stay and outpatient medical-surgical services with strong orientation to maternal-child care. The center offers a family-centered birthing center with a Level II neonatal intensive care unit, a pediatric unit, 24-hour emergency service, after-hours care, a new surgery center, a breast diagnosis center, and rehabilitation services. The other driving force behind the enviable quality of healthcare is the Memorial Health System, growing from a small 1904 hospital into a world-class health system. The mission of the system is embodied in its newest hospital, bringing together advanced technology and compassionate care in a dynamic new healing environment.
Cradled at the base of Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs draws newcomers to a truly attractive cityscape and natural environment and uninterrupted views of the Front Range of the Rockies. The peerless scenery once inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write the poem “America the Beautiful” is not lost on today’s relocating residents. Local and regional governments work synergistically to provide neighborhood, city, and regional parks and trails. El Paso County welcomes residents and visitors to 85 miles of trails, a wedding gazebo, an archery range, and tennis courts, to name just a few of the recreational facilities. Newcomers will discover a complete range of housing choices, from exclusive enclaves that command panoramic views to charming homes nestled in attractive neighborhoods and shaded by mature greenery. New construction, luxury townhomes, golf communities, and contemporary subdivisions are just a few of the choices that climb the area’s major and minor elevations.
