Crews continue to put final touches on University of Colorado Health‘s new free-standing emergency department and surgery center in west Greeley.

The Greeley Emergency and Surgery Center will open Nov. 26 in the King Soopers Marketplace at the southeast corner of 71st Avenue and 10th Street in Greeley.
When open, the 22,000-square-foot center will include an emergency department, surgery center, lab and imaging.
The public will get an opportunity to tour the new facility at a free Nov. 17 open house. Watch the blog for more details on the open house.
The emergency and surgery center will employ 96 people making a total annual salary of $4.6 million. Since most UCHealth employees – and their families — in the newly created jobs will spend their money in Greeley to purchase groceries, entertainment, household goods and big-ticket items like cars and homes, officials at the city of Greeley expect the project to put more money into local pocketbooks, which in turn will encourage more spending throughout the local economy.
That ripple effect could add $9.2 million to the community, says Bruce Biggi, the city of Greeley’s economic development manager.
