The new 60,000-square-foot hospital features a state-of-the-art emergency department with surgical capabilities, an eight-bed inpatient wing, imaging center, and ambulatory services.

The campus also includes medical office space, which will house three new specialty services: The Heart Institute of Colorado – North, Community Foot & Ankle Clinics, and Gastroenterology of the Rockies.

The hospital is joint venture agreement between SCL Health and Emerus Hospitals, a developer of micro-hospitals. The project team includes engineering and construction firm Kiewit Building Group, Inc. (Omaha, Neb.).

In addition to Northglenn, SCL Health operates hospitals in Northglenn, Westminster, Southwest Denver/Littleton, and Aurora, Colo.
