Ribbon Cuttings

Congratulations to  Pentrust Mortgage Group, Sandy Lisenbee, NMLS #1418941  on her ribbon cutting on Wednesday. She is quite the trooper...she was all set up with a tent outside and then the rain and hail came. So we moved indoors.

The double ribbon cutting was with the  Evans Area Chamber of Commerce . You'll notice in the picture the rain and hail. But, it was great to learn about Sandy and Pentrust Mortgage. You can reach Sandy at slisenbee@pentrustmortgage.com or (720) 577-5940.

The Women's Clinic of Northern Colorado - Fort Collins
September 5, 2019
Congratulations to  The Women’s Clinic of Northern Colorado The Women’s Clinic of Northern Colorado  and  The Women’s Clinic of Northern Colorado  on their ribbon cutting at the Loveland location (2500 Rocky Mountain Avenue). We want to thank all of the doctors and staff that rearranged their schedules so they could be present at this great event.

Scott Kenyon shared these fun facts:
The Women’s Clinic is the largest physician owned OBGYN group in Northern Colorado and one of the largest OBGYN groups in the west.

In the late 70’s and early 80’s Karol Krakauer was a registered nurse who was instrumental in helping the state of Colorado create a governing and licensing board for nurse midwifery. Today they have 8 board certified nurse midwives. All of their nurse midwives highly educated, experienced registered nurses who went back to school to become nurse midwives.

In 1978 the Women’s Clinic hired their first Fellowship trained Perinatologist in Northern Colorado to manage high risk pregnancies and keep mom and baby close to home. Today the high risk unit at the Women’s Clinic is called Rocky Mountain Perinatology, a fully owned subsidiary focusing on consultative maternal Fetal Medicine.

In 1985, in a mostly male dominated medical specialty, the Women’s Clinic hired Northern Colorado’s first female OBGYN Physician, Beverly Donnelley who became a partner. She retired in 2017 after 32 years of service. Today they have 13 female physicians, and 7 male physicians on staff at the Women’s Clinic. All of their physicians are board Certified by the American board of obstetrics and gynecology (except their newest physicians who typically take their boards within the first 2 years of joining our group).

Currently they have 3 Physician Assistants, 6 Nurse Practitioners, and 8 Midwives. What started out in 1965 as 3 doctors in a single office in Fort Collins delivering babies at Poudre Valley Hospital has grown into 3 offices and 38 providers delivering about 10 babies a day at hospitals in Fort Collins and Loveland. They are currently working on the logistics and staffing required to start providing care and delivering babies at the new UC Health Greeley hospital.

Here are their addresses and phone numbers for you to get in touch with them:
Loveland = 2500 Rocky Mountain, (970) 227-1229
Fort Collins = 1107 South Lemay Suite 300, (970) 493-7442
