WESTMINSTER and DENVER, Colo. — NexCore Group LP has broken ground on the 48,000-square-foot St. Anthony North Medical Pavilion in Westminster, Colo. The pavilion is the first facility to be constructed on St. Anthony North’s 35-acre greenfield campus, a 1-million-square-foot, regional open-air shopping center.
According to Deborah Horne, vice president of business development at St. Anthony North, the Medical Pavilion and future multi-phased development on the greenfield campus will allow the hospital to fulfill its vision of bringing comprehensive ambulatory and emergency services to the underserved residents of North Metro Denver, including the communities of Westminster, Thornton, Northglenn, Broomfield, Erie, Brighton and the surrounding areas.
“St. Anthony North joined the north metro community 40 years ago to meet an emerging healthcare need,” says Horne. “Since then the community has experienced significant growth, and this new project will allow us to continue to grow with our community by offering expanded healthcare services locally.”
The two-story facility will house physician office suites and hospital services, including 24-hour emergency department (serving approximately 20,000 patients per year), imaging center (including general radiology, CT, MRI and ultrasound), women’s breast imaging center, laboratory services, heliport (Flight for Life® emergency air transport) and possible ambulatory surgery center.
Future development on the campus will accommodate an expansion of services that will likely include primary care, cardiology, oncology, gastroenterology, occupational medicine, and preventive/wellness.
“The Medical Pavilion project is representative of an increasing trend, brought on in part by healthcare reform, of developing full-service outpatient facilities in retail quality locations, close to where patients live,” says Jarrod Daddis, executive managing director at NexCore Group. “This new model of ambulatory care delivery calls for high quality, efficiently designed facilities that offer patients integrated hospital and physician services under one roof.”
