Almost from its founding in 1871, Colorado Springs has been a city filled with health-seeking citizens. Community-minded progressive people built a thriving town at the foot of Pikes Peak. With the leadership of two prominent Methodist women, devout and progressive women of the city and the Pikes Peak region established Deaconess Hospital with a staff of Deaconess Nurses and student nurses in training, primarily caring for citizens with medical, surgical, and child bearing health concerns. Interrelated in this history is the impact of the social, community, environment technology, economy, evolving nursing education standards and health care realities in the story of Deaconess Training School, which became Beth-El School of Nursing at Beth-El Hospital. The city of Colorado Springs bought the hospital in 1943 and renamed it Memorial Hospital. In 1997, Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences merged with the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. The dedicated community of women and alumni tells their stories through their recorded memories, newsletters, and documents. The school of nursing has struggled, and ultimately thrived, through the ever-present support and appreciation of the people of the Pikes Peak region. We are Beth-El Nurses: A Heritage of Caring at the Foot of Pikes Peak is our passionate community endeavor.
