by ECT can’t tell you how “we know”
Lowering Healthcare Costs – Eagle County, Colorado
EXPECT TO READ – this Tuesday, November 10th 2015 – A new Press Release from Centura Health. Centura will announce that their big new Medical Office Building (~50,000 sq/ft.) (currently under construction in Avon) will have BOTH an Emergency Room and an “Urgent Care” facility.
The (will be announced) new Urgent Care facility can function as a type of “Primary Care” office for routine type Doctor Visits – for non Emergency Medical Service. Colds, Flu, Sore Throat, Stomach issues…more day to day, routine aliments will be handled by their new Urgent Care office. The much more serious, immediate need for Healthcare will be handled by their new ER facility – that will bring the much need COMPETITION to our monopolistic Vail Valley Medical Center and their ER at the Vail Hospital.
Comcast Service gets Redundant – Westbound
This week…Comcast Internet Service operating in the Eastern Half of Eagle County (east of Bellyache and Wolcott areas) will begin the TESTING of a new Fiber Optic (westbound) run along I-70 from the Comcast “Head-end” in Avon west to Dotsero. Turns out Comcast’s original Fiber Optic Run I-70 East into Golden has been CUT several times over the past few months – always CUT at the same I-70 Idaho Springs (CDOT construction site). This new I-70 westbound (soon) redundant Optic Fiber should greatly improve the reliability of your Comcast Internet (HDTV and Telephone) service.
Why Dotsero? Because Comcast has an existing Fiber Optic run from Denver that follows the Union Pacific right of way, along the Colorado River from UP’s Moffet Tunnel at the Continental Divide. It is this exiting Comcast Fiber Optic run (Dotsero) that will be used to tie in their Avon Head-End to the Fiber Optic run that currently services Glenwood Springs and Aspen/Snowmass.
ECT comment: Good for Comcast. Good for us in Eagle County.
