All year, Castle Rock residents and visitors have driven by the
much-anticipated phase one of Centura Health's Castle Rock
Adventist Health Campus. Everyone can get a sneak peek before the
doors officially open by attending a special Community Open House
on Sept. 1 from 4-7 p.m. Castle Rock Adventist Health Campus is
located at 2350 Meadows Blvd. in Castle Rock.
"As a community, we feel extremely blessed to have Centura as a
member of our community," said Castle Rock Mayor Paul Donahue.
This first phase of the health campus officially opens on Sept.
7, and boasts a 23,000-square-foot emergency department that is
open 24 hours every day, and includes state-of-the-art medical
imaging and laboratory services.
Attendees of the open house also will learn more about the phase
two plans, which includes a recently approved 212,240-square-foot,
four-story hospital with 50 licensed beds including intensive care,
medical/surgical, obstetrics and neonatal intensive care, along
with a full complement of hospital services such as three operating
rooms, two dedicated cesarean-section operating suites and a
cardiac catheterization lab. The $128 million hospital is financed
by Adventist Health Systems. The hospital is expected to open in
the summer of 2013. Additional growth on the hospital campus
includes a 40,000-square-foot medical office building and extensive
site development, expected to open as soon as summer 2012.
"We look forward to not only the health-related services (Castle
Rock Adventist Health Campus) will be able to provide to the
residents of Douglas County and the surrounding area, but also to
the economic catalyst the campus has created for the town," Donahue
Frank Gray, president and CEO of Castle Rock Economic
Development Council, agreed. "Since Centura first announced its
plans for phase one, we saw an increase in the number of inquiries
in space for doctors' offices and complementary health/wellness
services. Having a larger employer also attracts additional retail,
restaurants and other business to the area. The phase two
announcement has created even more excitement." When both phases
are complete, the project is expected to bring more than 300 new
jobs to the Castle Rock community.
"Our mission is to nurture the health of the people in our
community, and we are pleased to partner with the Castle Rock
community to fulfill this mission. This new hospital will offer
leading-edge medical technologies while providing a healing
environment for our patients," said Brian Moore, administrator of
Castle Rock Adventist Health Campus. "Many of our staff members
live in Castle Rock and are looking forward to providing expert
medical care to this growing and vibrant Colorado community."
