State, partners secure additional alternative care facility locations Facilities will be available to serve as medical shelters to increase ICU bed availability
DENVER, April 14, 2020: The Colorado state Unified Command Group (UCG) has completed leases on three more sites that will be able to serve as alternative care facilities so that hospitals can more quickly open up critical bed space if there is a surge in critical COVID-19 cases in Colorado. This brings the total number of alternative care facilities secured across Colorado to five.
The UCG completed leases on these three new medical shelter sites:
St. Anthony North in Westminster
St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo
