DENVER, CO (Nov. 10, 2011) – Centura Health, the state’s largest health care provider, announced today that it has entered into exclusive negotiations with Denver-based EFG Brownfield Partners, for the purchase and sale of the former St. Anthony Central Hospital Campus. In the coming weeks, EFG Brownfield Partners will begin engaging directly with the community regarding the development of the plan for the 18.85-acre campus. St. Anthony Hospital will honor its commitment to the community by providing ongoing health care services including urgent care, primary care, imaging, specialty clinics and Health Passport, the community health education program that was started by St. Anthony Hospitals in 2001.
