The July 4th holiday week will mark the beginning of construction activity at St. Vincent Hospital.

Construction vehicles and equipment will arrive at the site of the new hospital location on Fourth Street (between the current hospital and the Leadville Dog Park). In future weeks, preparation of the land will begin – this will include installation of construction fencing, clearing of trees and dirt work.

Crews are expected to work Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The hospital parking lot connecting between West Sixth Street and West Fourth Street will be closed to through traffic. The Lake County Public Health and LCBAG parking lot will remain open and accessible from Sixth Street.

Construction information is available at or by contacting Karen Onderdonk in the hospital’s outreach department at 719-486-7135
