What's New In the Metro North: May 15

 Children’s Hospital celebrated the “topping out” of its Colorado North Campus this week. The Campus will expand services to include emergency/urgent care, inpatient and observation care, sleep studies, operating room services, specialty clinics, and imaging center and diagnostic unit. Last year alone there were more than 24,000 specialty clinic visits and 35,000 urgent care visits to the Campus. “That high capacity signifies the need our surrounding communities in Broomfield, Weld, Larimer, Morgan Adams and Boulder counties have for us,” says Children’s Hospital CEO and Metro North Chamber board member Jena Hausmann.

We say goodbye to Sister Patricia (Sister Pat) Hayden this week. Sister Pat has served as Vice President of Mission Integration at St. Anthony North Hospital since 1992 and she’s been an amazing Metro North Chamber of Commerce board member. Everyone Sister Pat has touched in her 55 years in service to the Sisters ofCharity and the many communities she’s touched will miss her greatly. We all must grow and continue along the path called and Sister Pat has been elected as the Sisters of Charity next president. Thank you Sister Pat for being a great friend a great leader and for your loving and compassionate service that has touched the lives of thousands of people. Love and blessings from all of us! 

The Metro North Chamber helped kick off the BISNOW event this week at “Future of the Northwest Corridor.” The event took a deep dive into the major opportunities in Broomfield and Westminster and how the Northwest Corridor is the future home for innovation and technology. Special thanks to Broomfield Mayor Randy Ahrens (celebrating his final term in office this year) and Westminster Mayor Herb Atchison for sharing a great message of collaboration as they both offered some insight into what’s next for these major Denver submarkets.A big shout out to Sarah MacQuiddy, President of the Greeley Chamber of Commerce.

Sarah invited me to speak at a gathering of Leadership Greeley and I was inspired and grateful for the work she continues to unfold in the Greeley community. Sarah is retiring from the Chamber world, but the Greeley Chamber has a bright future thanks to her brilliant leadership.  Thanks, Sarah!

Attorneys General, Treasurers Support and Urge Passage of SAFE Banking

38 state and territory attorneys general sent a letter to congressional leaders urging passage of H.R. 1595, theSecure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act which would allow marijuana-related businesses in states with existing regulatory structures to access the banking system. The overwhelming and bipartisan support on this issue means it brings with it the formal support of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG). NAAG endorses less than a dozen policies a year and only does so when a measure has both bipartisan and supermajority support from the nation’s attorneys general. 

Additionally, in a letter dated April 30, 2019, seventeen state treasurers from Maine to Hawaii request “legislation that would provide a safe harbor for depository institutions that provide a financial produce or service to a covered business in a state that has implemented laws and regulations that ensure accountability in the cannabis industry.”
