The RidgeGate community in Lone Tree, announced March 3 that HealthONE has purchased a 10.75 acre parcel of land on RidgeGate’s West Side for the continued expansion of Sky Ridge Medical Center and to meet ongoing demand for new services and programs at the award winning hospital.
“We are pleased to have Health
ONE acquire additional land in RidgeGate for the continued growth of the Sky Ridge Medical Center, which was RidgeGate’s kick-off land sale in 2001, and a top area employer beginning in 2003 when it opened,” said Keith Simon, Executive Vice President and Director of Development for Coventry Development Corporation, the master developer for RidgeGate. “Sky Ridge Medical Center has transformed the quality of health care available to residents of the region and has grown to be one of the top medical centers in the entire Denver metro area and we are so very proud that they selected RidgeGate and the City of Lone Tree to locate within.”
The property is immediately south of the current Sky Ridge Medical Center Campus and is the second-to-last parcel for sale in RidgeGate’s West Village. Sky Ridge Medical Center will use the site for future growth opportunities.
“While there are no immediate development plans for this parcel, this purchase gives us the flexibility to grow with the community,” said Kirk McCarty, Sky Ridge Medical Center’s new President and Chief Executive Officer. “RidgeGate and the City of Lone Tree have been excellent partners, and we look forward to sharing our plans whey they are finalized.”
