    [QUOTE=kastas]Do you happen to know anything about Presbyterian/St.Luke's? I am flying out after the 1st of the year to meet with St. Joseph's recruiter, but PSL has also called me. I thought I could meet w/ both whe I go out there. Any thoughts? Would one of the newer hospitals be better to look into? I do L&D.

    P/SL has one of the best high risk antepartum units in the nation. Dr Rich Porrecco is the head of the department, and is a resource for many doctors across the nation. (His name might not be familiar because he thinks all doctors have the knowledge that he has) I have cared for some ladies who have spent as much as 12 weeks of their pregnancy in house, then had healthy babies. (Yea) They serve patients for as much as 1,000 miles away, and have a very busy OB flight program. This is staffed by PNP (perinatal nurse practitioner) The nursery is also level 3, and has many cutting edge proceedures and equiptment available to them.

    Incidentally, P/SL and St Joe's are across the street from each other.

    Come on out! Denver is a great place to be a nurse! :angel2:

    The Canon City hospital is fairly nice, and is a part of Centura (a Catholic Hospital group) I worked there in L/D for a short while. We did about 50-60 del a month, and had a level II nursery. The problem for me was that so many of my patients were incarcerated at the women's prison in Florence. It really bothered me to have them come in in shackles, and know that their children would be raised by family or more likely, the Mennonite ladies. They were wonderful and took these poor little kids and treated them as their own till mommy was able to take them. I came back to Denver!

    Hmmm.... Denver. I have not lived there but have commuted back and forth an awful lot as an Agency Nurse. I tend to favor large Medical Centers so keep that in mind. I love Denver Health with it's diversity of population and very nice to work with staff (Agency Friendly). I have worked m/s, oncology and detox.

    I have heard the University of Colorado Hospital is a very high tech facility and would like yo to check that out on their website. I personally have never worked there.

    So I am babbling on here but what specifically may I help you with? Feel free to ask away.

    Thanks so much for the information about Canon City. That's so nice to hear that the Mennonite ladies are taking good care of the inmate's children. Yes that is a sad situation.
