Nestled at 10,152 feet of elevation in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, St. Vincent Hospital is a 25 bed Critical Access Hospital serving the rural area of Lake County and North America’s highest city of Leadville, Colorado. 
Our Mission
The mission of St. Vincent General Hospital is to provide the best possible continuum of healthcare services to meet the health needs of persons in Lake County and surrounding areas. These services will be provided in a quality, cost-effective and accessible basis, and achieve a balance between community needs and available resources. We will reflect the caring and noble nature of this mission in all that we do.



**Hospital Board Approves Resolution for Special Election**


St. Vincent General Hospital District (SVGHD) Board of Directors and the Lake County Board of Commissioners have voted to approve 2 separate ballot questions for mill-levy increases in the upcoming election.


The hospital district mill-levy increase will be up to 3.625 mills in support of sustainable health care solutions for Lake County.


The county mill-levy increase will be up to 3.8 mills in support of ambulance services provided by SVGHD. County mills are worth more than hospital district mills. By sharing the increase taxpayers are impacted less.


Combined the 2 ballot questions support the Centura Health / SVGHD Board plan for an outpatient focused, community integrated, Neighborhood Health Center (NHC) with:


·       24 hour emergency room

·       24 hour ambulance

·       2 inpatient/holding beds.

·       diagnostic services

·       primary care

·       expanded outpatient and specialty services


The proposed plan for a NHC is in direct response to the services community members have expressed they want in Lake County. It was created after several months of research and observations, data analysis, meetings with community members and stakeholders and a community survey.


The ballot questions will be certified by Sept. 4 to be put before voters this election (Nov. 3, 2015).


More information will be available to the public in the coming weeks.  Contact Karen Onderdonk at St. Vincent Hospital by clicking here (or call 719-486-0230 ext. 135) for more information or schedule an informational session for you and/or a group.
