Why Saint Joe's?
As the state’s oldest, private teaching hospital, Saint Joseph Hospital has welcomed more newborns to our state than any other hospital, and the organization continues to make history as it prepares to open a new hospital and medical campus. In 1873, the Sisters of Charity traveled west to bring healthcare to a young but booming mining community.
Saint Joseph Hospital has renewed its commitment to the health and vitality of downtown Denver, working with neighborhood associations, city leadership and a team of health professionals on a new hospital, which opened in December 2014. This redevelopment honors the past, celebrates today’s leadership and builds for the future by providing state-of the-art facilities designed to meet changing medical needs. The new St. Joe’s, which replaces three buildings that went up in 1910, 1932 and 1964, is a model for the new era of hospitals — smaller, more outpatient focused and designed to create efficiency needed to lower the escalating costs of healthcare.
