Located in the north Denver suburb of Westminster, St. Anthony North (SAN) is a full-service, acute-care community hospital. Since 1971, this Level III trauma-designated hospital has provided 24-hour emergency care and operates one of busiest EDs in the Denver Metro Area. Medical specialties available include emergency care, cardiac care, advanced wound care, vein treatment, spine and joint surgery and a comprehensive birth center. This hospital also offers a wide range of classes to help nurture the health of people in the community.  It’s an amazing time to join the St. Anthony North team as we prepare for the future with a new 350,000 square foot hospital at 1-25 and 144th Ave. in Westminster. The new campus will include 60,000 square feet of integrated primary and specialty physician clinics, community health and wellness services, a women’s center with labor/delivery suites, ambulatory surgery center, 92-inpatient beds and an outpatient diagnostic center with lab and imaging services.  Currently open for business as the St. Anthony Medical Pavilion, we offer residents of this growing area a 24-hour emergency room, imaging, mammography and physician clinic services. Our exciting construction continues around the Medical Pavilion to fully transform it into the new St. Anthony North Medical Campus by early 2015.
