Centura Health in Denver Announces New Hospital


Centura Health, Denver, Colo., along with Summit County, Colo., announced that they have approved a letter of intent to build a new, 25-bed community hospital near Frisco, Colo.

In addition to the 74,000-square-foot hospital, several other medical facilities are expected to be part of the campus, including a 30,000-square-foot medical office building, a 10,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center and a 11,000-square-foot community care clinic. Construction is expected to begin in June 2004 and be completed by December 2005. For more information, contact Bev Lilly at Centura Health at bevlilly@centura.org.
