The development of Sky Ridge Medical Center was, in significant part, the result of an outcry from both the community as well as elected officials in Douglas County, including the Douglas County Commissioners and former Senator John Evans. Until the opening of this hospital in August of 2003, Douglas County has been without an acute care hospital to provide for the healthcare needs of the community.
Sky Ridge has 284 beds and is located on a 57-acre campus at the southwest corner of I-25 and Lincoln Avenue in Lone Tree, Douglas County, Colorado (south Denver Metro area).

The inpatient nurse practitioner delivers nursing and collaborative medical aspects of care to specific populations within the scope and standards of practice set by the American Nurse’s Association. The nurse practitioner collaborates with the physicians and interdisciplinary team members to review the plan of care and intervene when necessary to ensure adequate delivery of quality health care in a cost effective way. Utilizing extensive advanced knowledge of pathophysiology and pharmacology, the nurse practitioner exercises independent judgment in the assessment, diagnosis and initiation of certain delegated medical processes and procedures.
