The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region and Penrose-St. Francis Health Services

Developing New Community Health Partnership and Service Delivery Framework

The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region and Penrose-St. Francis Health Services are entering into a strategic community-wide partnership to improve the health of the population throughout the Pikes Peak Region and enhance the value of both organizations. Each organization has unique competencies, workforce talent, physical footprint and share a common purpose in improving the health of our community. 

“The Y is thrilled to have Penrose-St. Francis as our Health Care System Partner of choice. Aligning our shared values and vision, the Y realizes that through collaborative efforts we can have a greater impact and meet the growing needs of our community,” said President and CEO of the Y, Boyd Williams. “The Y believes it is the premier organization to deliver transformational and sustainable well-being throughout the community. We want to help people become and stay healthy by using expertise from both organizations to provide access and services in a creative and impactful way.”

The vision is to merge these two world-class social platforms to nurture the health of our communities through new programs and services such as health risk assessments, screenings and employee wellness.


“We are excited to become the Health Care System Partner of the Y,” said Margaret Sabin, President and CEO of Penrose-St. Francis Health Services. “The Tri-Lakes Health Pavilion in Monument opened earlier this year and embodies the structure and spirit that both Penrose-St. Francis and the Y wish to extend throughout the Pikes Peak Region.”

Penrose-St. Francis hopes to collaborate with the Y on programs and services at co-located facilities with services which may include chronic disease management, screenings, motivational coaching and many other programs.
