The primary concern for the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association, a public health organization, is meeting community needs.
Although the option of purchasing The Memorial Hospital’s old campus with a $1 million federal grant has fallen through, Suzi Mariano, VNA public information coordinator, said the organization will focus on the immediate future: an interior remodel that will double the VNA’s number of exam rooms.
For about 60 years, The Memorial Hospital occupied the north end of the building at 785 Russell St. In recent years, the VNA rented out the south side of the building.
When the hospital planned to move to its new building west of Craig, the VNA began to look at occupying some or all of the old hospital campus.
