The Memorial Citizens' Commission has reached a decision over how Memorial Health System should be run.
Currently, it is owned and governed by the City of Colorado Springs.
The commission has spent the last few months researching several different business models.
Commission members unanimously voted Wednesday night to convert Memorial Health System into an independent 501 (c)(3) nonprofit.
"It gets us out from city government. Not that government is a bad thing, but city governments are not designed to run the best health care for communities," said Larry McEvoy, CEO of Memorial Health System.
The commission will present their recommendation to the Colorado Springs City Council later this month. If approved, then it will be put on a ballot for voters to decide.
