Englewood-based Centura will build 10,800-square-foot health and wellness centers in Dacono and Thornton, and renovate an existing building in Westminster to a 46,000-square-foot health and wellness center.
The new centers, scheduled to open this fall, will offer primary care, specialty services, diagnostic imaging and wellness services.
The centers will co-locate providers and services to help consumers use the health-care system more appropriately and manage their health from a wellness perspective, according to a company statement.
Each center will have physicians and mid-level providers for primary care, obstetrics and gynecology and a number of rotating specialists based on needs of the community, plus outpatient imaging services – 3-D mammography will be available only at the center in Westminster. They also will provide nutrition counseling and wellness strategies.
The Dacono and Thornton locations, $7 million each, are funded by Catholic Health Initiatives, and funding for the $15.6 million Westminster center is made possible by Adventist Health System.
Construction on these projects begins this month. The centers are located at I-25 and County Road 8 (Summit Boulevard) in Dacono, 128th Street and Colorado Boulevard in Thornton, and U.S. Highway 36 and Church Ranch Boulevard in Westminster.
