Hospital Relocation Performed with Surgical Precision: Graebel Plans and Manages a Multi-Stage Move for St. Anthony Campus

St. Anthony Hospital is recognized nationally for its orthopedic, neuroscience, cardiovascular and trauma programs. It’s part of Centura Health, the largest healthcare network in Colorado.

After building a 50-acre healthcare campus in Lakewood, Colorado, the hospital needed to move from its Denver facility into the new 50-acre campus. St. Anthony Hospital also ordered new equipment and furniture for the facility from multiple suppliers. These items had to be stored, assembled and then delivered as portions of the building were completed.
