Penrose-St. Francis Health Services' leader will soon focus solely on the Colorado Springs area amid a $700 million expansion here.

Margaret Sabin will relinquish oversight of St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo and St. Thomas More Hospital in Cañon City by Dec. 1 to spend more time steering hospitals in Colorado Springs, Penrose-St. Francis announced Monday.

The move ends Sabin's tenure as president of Centura Health's South State Operating Group, which she assumed in 2009.

It comes amid burgeoning growth for Penrose-St. Francis in Colorado Springs, including the creation of a third hospital campus on Fillmore hill, the expansion of St. Francis Medical Center and the transformation of Penrose Hospital into a Rehab Center of Excellence.

Penrose Hospital also has spent years vying for a Level I trauma center designation.

Last week, the American College of Surgeons conducted a site review, and a decision on whether that organization will grant its Level I designation is expected in a few weeks, said Chris Valentine, a hospital spokesman. The college's designation is considered another step in seeking a Level I status from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, which is more difficult to receive.
