The Prowers Medical Center in Lamar, Colorado, which ranks as the #1 most affordable city to live in the state, has finally completed its expansion project. The improvements, which have taken several years to complete, are finally being unveiled in late September to an excited community eager to benefit from the changes.
This growth in the local medical community is also boosting employment opportunities in the region.

The impressive expansions to Prowers Medical Center include: two new operating suites and equipment, enhanced pre- and post-op areas, an expanded emergency department, and a new gymnasium specifically designed for rehabilitation from injuries and surgeries. Ultimately, the enhancements will mean increased privacy for patients and an outstanding improvement in medical care for the community.
One of the most intriguing aspects of the expansion was that construction was covered by the hospital’s general operating budget. This particular announcement meant that there was no use of tax dollars and the community did not have to carry any of the financial burden.
In reference to the benefit that the region would experience because of the hospital’s growth, PMC’s Chief Executive Officer, Craig R. Loveless, stated, “The hospital and the community are one – when we improve, we improve the community and vice versa.”
Amazingly, the completion of the new facilities falls at the heels of awards just recently received by the hospital at the Quorum Health Resources Annual Leadership Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. At the event, which recognizes top performing hospitals nationwide, Prowers Medical Center received both the “Most Improved Performance” and “Best Overall Performance” among Critical Access Hospitals for 2016.
This rare occurrence of being presented with two awards means the local community of Lamar and its surrounding area are definitely receiving top quality medical care.
Dr. Margaret Loewen believes that the awards received speak on the team effort and positive contributions displayed by all the employees and that this is truly what has helped PMC become such a successful environment.
“We’ve made some important strides in quality of care and it’s showing up in other places in addition to patient satisfaction” she said.
Beyond the Prowers Medical Center, Lamar also holds numerous medical practices and clinics that are seeking highly qualified personnel to provide vital and meaningful medical care to the local community and the surrounding areas.
