Penrose Hospital Main

Founded by the Sisters of St. Francis and the Sisters of Charity, Penrose-St. Francis is a member of Centura Health, a statewide health care system sponsored jointly by Catholic Health Initiatives and the Adventist Health System

After 60 railroad workers were injured in a train derailment near Leadville in the late 1880s, B.P. Anderson, MD, and four sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration began a door-to-door fundraising campaign to build a hospital in Colorado Springs. Since its inception, Penrose-St. Francis Health Services has been infused with vision and dedicated to clinical excellence, whole-person care and serving the unique needs of its communities.
