DACONO — Centura Health announced plans March 6 for a 10,800-square-foot health and wellness center in Dacono.
The center is planned for a site at the intersection of Interstate Highway 25 and Summit Boulevard (Weld County Road 8).
According to press release from the company, the new health and wellness center is anticipated to open in the fall of this year.
The center will “seamlessly incorporate the key components of optimal health — primary care, specialty services, diagnostic imaging and wellness services — to provide Dacono and nearby communities with convenient, integrated, high-value care,” the release stated.
The Centura facility would be part of a recent wave of investment in medical facilities in the Carbon Valley area, including the opening of the Indian Peaks Medical Center in Frederick at the end of last year.
Like Indian Peaks, the Centura center would be a stand-alone facility. Centura Health described the planned center as being part of the company’s “health neighborhood” approach.
“The stand-alone health center will co-locate providers and services to promote care coordination with multiple access points. Centura Health is focused on helping individuals manage their health from a wellness perspective with both a service-friendly environment and affordable costs,” the statement read. “Through this “health neighborhood” approach, Centura Health is advancing the delivery of health care, improving the health of the populations we serve and caring for communities throughout Colorado and Western Kansas through a physician-led, team-medicine approach, focused on promoting quality care by utilizing evidence-based medicine and best practices to offer consumers the Total Health Solution.”
Funding for the $7-million project is made possible by Catholic Health Initiatives, co-sponsor of Centura Health.
Centura expects construction will begin this month.
The center is expected to include a five-acre, helipad-ready site to support emergent health care needs, physicians and mid-level providers for primary care, obstetrics and gynecology and a number of rotating specialists based on needs of the community, outpatient imaging services, health and wellness services delivered to the customer’s room, such as nutrition counseling and wellness strategies.
Dacono Mayor Charles Sigman praised the project.
“The City of Dacono is pleased to welcome Centura Health to our community. This amazing facility will deliver a variety of healthcare and wellness options to Dacono residents and the surrounding community,” Sigman said. “Everything from the building to the services offered is well thought-out and we are thrilled to have them in our city.”
St. Anthony North is sponsoring hospital for the project, and Carole Peet, CEO of St. Anthony North said the project was part of the company’s efforts to attend to patient care earlier with more preventative options.
“We are continuing to move upstream to better manage the health of our communities and meet the increasing need to offer convenient, integrated, high-value care,” Peet said. “We will offer a wide range of health and wellness services with a strong focus on improving health care value while supporting our healing ministry.”
Centura Health described its health neighborhoods concept as an alternative to “fragmented medical care care available in most communities today.
“Through an innovative approach to delivery that Centura Health calls health neighborhoods, our goal is to provide a clinically-integrated, coordinated and comprehensive approach to caring for our communities,” the release stated. “The health neighborhood is built around physician-led teams that use evidence-based medicine and best practices. The focus is on delivering high-value care that offers outstanding outcomes, service and convenience while also controlling costs.”
