Realtor.com shows over 200 homes in COLO SPGS under $250k which checks a lot of your boxes and has good access to health care for retirees.
I'd second Canon City. There are lots of nice towns with vibrant downtowns and pleasant environments, but the price is going to be prohibitive.

I was thinking Salida until you said good medical.

Went back through other posts and agree Pueblo isn't right for you. Not nice enough and not good enough shopping, but maybe enough medical, definitely affordable, but at what cost?

I'd say forget the rest of the Front Range, so pretty much CoSprings to Fort Collins. Why? Too expensive and too crowded. To live in a nice place there, too crowded and too expensive, but good medical and good shopping.

Grand Junction area? Aka Western Slope? Maybe? How about Utah or Idaho or Wyoming?
