ABOUT THE FACILITY About Parkview Medical Center:
Parkview’s mission is to “provide the highest quality health care to the people we serve.” Our vision is “to be the provider of choice for patients, physicians, and employees.” 

From its inception in 1923, Parkview Medical Center has provided millions of dollars in charity care to our community and in fiscal 2022, this important work continued. Parkview has one of the highest percentages of Medicare and Medicaid in the state at 80%.

Parkview considers itself an integral part of Pueblo and southern Colorado. Our success can be directly attributed to an outstanding governing board. Parkview Board Members define themselves as Pueblo citizens first and Parkview Board Members second. Maintaining this independence allows the Board and Leadership the ability to prioritize key decisions and commit resources based on the needs of our community.

Beyond the millions in charity care provided every year, Parkview continues work to enhance our medical facilities. Construction is complete on the new Parkview Comprehensive Cancer Center.  This facility is located on the main campus and will house Parkview Radiation Oncology, Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers and the Parkview Breast Health Center. It provides a truly complete approach to cancer treatment for our community and the surrounding counties in one centralized location. Construction is complete on our new state-of-the-art orthopedic hospital in Pueblo West. That facility offers the latest high-tech robotic surgical techniques focus on our expanding orthopedic and rehabilitation programs.  Both opened in fall of 2022.

As the region’s largest private employer with nearly 3,000 outstanding individuals, Parkview continues to strategically grow. Parkview’s Internal Medicine Residency continues to produce top quality physicians. This program was designed to attract and retain much-needed physicians to our region and our success has been outstanding. Additionally, we currently offer fellowships in Gastroenterology, Pulmonary/Critical Care and Cardiology.

About the Community:

Pueblo County is located at the base of the Rocky Mountains, 100 miles south of Denver, along Interstate 25 and US Highway 50. Three hundred days of sunshine each year plus the flow of the Arkansas River and Fountain Creek provide rich agricultural land and ample recreational activities.

We're not just any city in Colorado—we're a historic and diverse place that keeps it spicy with our unique Pueblo Chile and enticing experiences around every corner.
