St. Anthony North Hospital announced the expansion of its campus through the addition of a 12-acre parcel of land on the northwest side of the existing campus. Catholic Health Initiatives, St. Anthony’s sponsor, recently acquired the property from Pillar of Fire.
The acquisition brings the size of the St. Anthony North Hospital campus to approximately 26 acres.
"Having this additional property paves the way for the construction of a medical office building right here on our campus," said James Dover, Administrator of St. Anthony North Hospital. "That will mean improved access to medical services for our community and enhanced convenience for physicians."
"Like our emergency department expansion project, our plan to develop an on-campus medical office building is another expression of our commitment to our community and our mission of service," continued Dover.
Last year, St. Anthony North Hospital announced plans to significantly expand and renovate its emergency department. Construction of the new emergency department is slated to begin in mid-April 2005 and will take approximately 12 months. The project will add 12,000 square feet to the hospital and bring the number of emergency department rooms from 20 to 32.
St. Anthony North will engage a development company to build and lease the medical office building. Discussions with a potential developer currently are underway.
St. Anthony North Hospital has served the people of Westminster and Adams County since 1971. A full-service acute care hospital with a Level IV trauma center designation, St. Anthony North is home base for the Flight For Life helicopter. St. Anthony North is part of St. Anthony Hospitals, a nationally recognized health care organization serving Colorado for more than 100 years.
