CS Osteopathic relocates to new Westside building

       The Colorado Springs Osteopathic Foundation's Centennial Health facility has opened at 3480 Centennial Blvd. The 11,706 square foot single-story building also houses the foundation's offices.
       Centennial Health has 11 patient examination rooms, two procedure rooms, a lab, and offices for consultation, physicians and foundation staff.
       The non-profit foundation provides primary medical care combined with chronic disease management and preventive medicine for ages 40 and older. It has been in the downtown area since its founding in 1984.
       The Centennial location was chosen because of nearby interstate access and a demographic study that showed a need in the Westside area, according to Colorado Springs Osteopathic spokesperson Doris Ralston.
       “Between here and Manitou, there aren't a lot of medical offices,” she said. “It felt like a good area, and we'd outgrown our old building.”
       The site is just north of the King Soopers shopping center at Centennial and Fillmore Street. Ralston said the foundation also likes the way a kind of medical network is coming together in that area. Two other facilities - the new Center on Centennial rehabilitation facility, due to open in July, and a two-story office building with some medical-field tenants- are being constructed on adjacent sites, while the Colorado Springs Health Partners has been grading land for a future medical complex on the south side of Fillmore at Centennial.
       The Centennial Health facility was built over the past year by H.W. Houston Construction Company of Pueblo, Colorado. The architectural firm James W. Nakai & Associates in association with Keystone Associates designed the new facility.
       Colorado Springs Osteopathic's physicians and nurse practitioners also provide medical care at five assisted living facilities in town, including Brighton Gardens and Village at Skyline on the Westside.
