A healthy destination for community members, patients and associates
St. Anthony North Health Campus opened our community garden in May of 2018. Our mission for the garden is to create a sustainable place where community members, patients and associates may congregate in a holistic, healing environment to locally grow and harvest nutritious foods. Our community garden will help to foster whole person care by promoting wellness-based partnerships to help our community flourish.
We are committed to creating a healthy environment where our patients, families, community members and associates can be active. Despite the well-known benefits of physical activity, only 25% of American adults engage in the recommended levels of physical activity, and 29% engage in no leisure time physical activity. Strong evidence shows that when people have access to parks and gardens, they improve their overall physical and psychological health.
Gardening through our mission
The mission of St. Anthony North Health Campus, part of Centura Health, is to extend the healing ministry of Christ by caring for those who are ill and by nurturing the health of the people in our communities. Our Community Garden enables us to customize care around the second half of our mission; nurturing the health of the people in our communities, by engaging people outside the four walls of our hospital. We will extend our knowledge of health and nutrition by growing our own fresh produce and sharing it with patients, associates and community members.

Community Garden Sculptural Mural: The Four Seasons
In 2015, St. Anthony North Health Campus commissioned artist Barry Rose to design and work with community organizations to create a large, freestanding tile mural to serve as the centerpiece of the health campus’ community garden, opening spring 2017. The health campus wanted to create a community art project to serve as a tribute to the people St. Anthony North Health Campus serves.
The final phase of St. Anthony North Health Campus’ large-scale community art project is being completed by local artist Barry Rose with the installation of 300 hand-painted tiles created by 150 volunteers from Westminster community groups. Entitled “The Four Seasons,” the four-sided sculptural mural measures 9’ high x 5’ wide, and has an opening in the center where people can walk through. It will serve as the centerpiece of the health campus’ community garden, opening spring 2017, where community members can grow their own produce.
St. Anthony North Health Campus partnered with nine local community groups to create the project. Volunteers from each group spent two sessions with Rose. The first was to learn how to paint with glaze and to design a practice tile. In the second session, volunteers created their permanent tiles now being installed on the structural mural. All tiles were fired at 2,150 degrees Fahrenheit by Rose in his kiln. “This structural mural is a gateway to reflection for hospital patients, visitors and staff and uses Colorado’s seasons as a symbol of life’s transitions,” said Rose. Rose’s works can be seen at the Denver Library, Denver Aquarium and Coors Field.

DAISY Award (Recognize your nurse)
The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33, from complications of an auto-immune disease. During his eight-week hospital stay, his family was impressed by the care and compassion his nurses provided, not only to him but to everyone in the family. They created the DAISY Award in Pat’s memory to recognize those nurses who make a big difference in the lives of so many people.
Our DAISY Award honorees demonstrate St. Anthony North Health Campus core values. They also demonstrate excellence through their clinical expertise and compassionate care. They are recognized as role models in our nursing community. St. Anthony North Health Campus is proud to be a DAISY Award partner.
Each DAISY Award Honoree will be recognized at a public ceremony in her/his unit, and will receive:
- a beautiful certificate
- a DAISY Award pin
- a hand-carved stone sculpture entitled A Healer’s Touch
In addition, their clinic/unit will celebrate with Cinnabon® cinnamon rolls – a favorite of Patrick’s. The Barnes family asks that whenever nurses smell that wonderful cinnamon aroma, they stop for a moment and think about how special they are.
