(WESTMINSTER, COLO.) – Centura Health, the region’s largest health care provider, marked a major milestone on December 16, breaking ground on an expansion to Centura St. Anthony North Hospital in Westminster. This expansion will include a five-story building with a total of 133,000 square feet. Inside, a premier cancer center, including radiation oncology, medical oncology, and a state-of-the-art infusion center, will be available for the almost 1,800 St. Anthony North community residents diagnosed with cancer each year.
Also included in the project is a 30-bed medical surgical unit, a future planned 26-bed Intensive Care Unit and space for an additional 60 medical surgical beds. When the tower is completely built out, St. Anthony North Hospital will have an overall capacity of 237 beds. The first iteration of this project is slated to be completed by fall 2024.
“It is no surprise Westminster and the surrounding areas are growing rapidly, and Centura Health is committed to keeping health care local,” said Dr. Constance Schmidt, CEO of Centura St. Anthony North Hospital. “This expansion will provide much-needed cancer care services right in our community and will expand our capacity to meet the growing needs.”
Mayor Nancy McNally and City Council members joined to celebrate this momentous occasion, alongside Centura leaders and guests.
