VA Eastern Colorado Health Care System
RMR VAMC Open for Business
A steady stream of cars poured in off the main thoroughfare in Colorado: Colfax Street had a new tenant and they were open for business. The wait had been covered time and time again, but on July 31, the wait ended and the new Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center opened their doors to treat their first patients.
From 6:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., a bevy of welcoming employees and volunteers walked up and down the heart of the campus with maps in hand and wide smiles, ready to guide Veterans to their first appointments. Registered nurse Anna Chmura was among the greeters, who stated “It’s fun to watch them be so excited about the new facility.”
There was no shortage of helpers and smiles. Staff were excited to serve the Veterans and the patients were ecstatic to finally be in their new facility. Several Veterans came out just to perform reconnaissance missions to ensure they could find the location of future appointments.
