COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - In the near future, a new medical complex will be serving residents living in eastern El Paso County and the Springs' east side.

UCHealth announced Monday plans to break ground next spring on a new medical complex just west of Banning Lewis Ranch.

"UCHealth purchased this property in 2016 with the goal of bringing advanced health care closer to home for residents living near the Powers corridor,” said Joel Yuhas, president and CEO of UCHealth Memorial, in a statement Monday. “El Paso County now leads the state in population growth, and that growth will continue as more and more people choose to live in eastern Colorado Springs. The Eastview Medical Center will provide multiple services in one convenient location, as UCHealth continues to reinvest in our community to fulfill our mission of improving lives.”

The facility will be 120,500 square feet and is anticipated to open in early 2022.
