Jacuzzis just before birth? That is just one of the interesting services and medical practices being utilized these days at Memorial Hospital North. The five-story hospital opened in April 2007 to help serve the northern sector of Colorado Springs, which is growing more and more in population every year. “About four years ago, we talked about moving into the northern part of the city, so we purchased 82 acres and built our second hospital,” says Joy Powell, vice president and administrator of Memorial Hospital North.
