Catholic Health Initiatives approved $440 million to build a replacement medical campus for 100-year-old St. Anthony Central Hospital, Denver, and a site in suburban Lakewood, Colo., is being considered. Construction could begin next fall, with the new 330-bed hospital and adjacent medical office buildings completed in 2009. CHI announced its decision to rebuild in a new location in late March, after deciding it would be too expensive to renovate the current facility. Denver officials are working to establish a task force to discuss redevelopment options for the existing campus. The hospital has indicated a willingness to consider retaining some neighborhood healthcare programs. -- by Andis Robeznieks
