“This beautiful home will serve as an oasis for patients and families at St. Francis and the cancer center at the hospital,” said Patrick Sharp, CEO of Penrose and St. Francis Hospitals. “We believe this house will provide a quiet place for rest and allow our patients to heal close to the compassionate care they are receiving at the hospital.”

Supported by Penrose-St. Francis Health Foundation’s Guest House Ministry, and in partnership with HBA Cares and the Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs, the 29,000-square-foot facility will support guests through amenities such as private suites, home-cooked meals, a business center, a playroom, and more.

Centura expects the guest house to open in the Fall of 2023, and will feature 25 suites complete with private restrooms.
