Hospital welcomes new CEO
Dr. Jandel Allen-Davis has been named president and CEO at Craig Hospital in Englewood. She will formally begin her role Oct. 1. Allen-Davis replaces Mike Fordyce, who served as president and CEO of Craig for 10 years and announced his retirement earlier this year. She was chosen after a six-month search and received unanimous support from the search committee.
Allen-Davis comes to Craig from Kaiser Permanente, where she was most recently the vice president of government, external relations and research. She has been with Kaiser for 24 years, serving in a number of positions from staff physician to the executive leadership role.
“Dr. Allen-Davis has the right experience and skills to lead a top rehabilitation hospital,” Bob Ladenburger, Craig Hospital board chair, said in a news release. “But above all, the value she places on patients and the quality of their care is in perfect alignment with Craig's culture, which is what makes this hospital unique.”
Allen-Davis is charged with leading one of the top 10 rehabilitation hospitals in the country, as recently named by U.S. News & World Report. She will work closely with Fordyce to transition into the role over the coming months before his departure in December.
“I am honored and excited to be an ambassador and advocate for the Craig family and the patients it serves,” Allen-Davis said in the release. “This is a special place — the way Craig puts patients and their families at the center of care is directly in line with how I practiced medicine. I'm very grateful for the opportunity to join this community.”
Credit Union to open

The credit union will have representatives available from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays. A drive-up interactive teller machine with extended live video teller hours also will be available.
“This new location will provide local, convenient access to personal service for the more than 1,000 Ent members who currently live within a five-mile radius,” Brian Kayton, Ent's Denver area regional manager, said in a news release.
New day care coming soon
An old building off Gilbert Street in downtown Castle Rock will soon be revitalized to serve as a 6,507-square-foot day care center, an additional 2,300 square feet of outdoor recreation space.
Davey Daycare is set to open at the end of 2018. The daycare will offer affordable child care services to families in Castle Rock and the surrounding area.
The remodel will add ADA compliant restrooms for the children and adults. Updates to the indoor rooms, kitchen, and outdoor play area will also be included in the work, which is being completed by MW Golden Constructors.
