With the recent addition of the West Littleton Neighborhood Health Center, the Centura Health family of Adventist Hospitals in Denver is making high-
quality, affordable healthcare easier to access. It will expand Littleton Adventist Hospital’s involvement in the community and further their mission to extend the healing ministry of Christ and nurture the health of the people in our communities.
The Neighborhood Health Center offers a broad range of services including a fully equipped emergency room, imaging services, primary care providers from Centura Health Physician Group and physician specialists. The center will make a meaningful impact on the community’s healthcare needs through a combined focus on wellness and prevention.
This innovative facility is much more than a typical walk-in clinic. It features a hybrid mix of both family practice and emergency healthcare services. Patients requiring non-emergency or well-patient care can quickly be seen by a physician who will serve as their primary care provider. Patients with more critical conditions can quickly be seen in the ER. Those requiring hospital stays will be transported seven miles away to the main Littleton Adventist Hospital facility.
The health center’s focus on community wellness and prevention provides a strong connection to the Adventist health message. Its expansive conference room will be used to host educational programs, community events and wellness classes such as CREATION Health.
“Centura Health is working to shift the focus from reactive care to preventive care and wellness,” said Littleton Adventist Hospital CEO Brett Spenst. “This means providing the right care at the right time close to home. For more than 28 years, our hospital has been the hospital of choice for the greater Littleton area and we’re honored to deepen our community relationships to work together for lifelong health.”
