Centura Health Castle Rock Adventist Health Campus
Centura Health, Colorado’s largest healthcare system, asked HuntonBrady Architects to design a new health campus 30 miles south of Denver in the growing city of Castle Rock, Colorado. A 20-year master plan was developed to accommodate growth to 200 beds. The Centura Rock AdventHealth Campus opened in 2021.
The Emergency Department and Imaging Center opened in 2012 as the first phase of the new Health Campus, addressing the most needed services for the community. It was conceived as a freestanding building at 26,000 SF to operate as a self-sufficient Emergency Department and Imaging Center and later connect to the future hospital.
The public “face” of the ED building is a dramatic patient reception and waiting concourse with well-balanced proportions, profusely washed with natural light. The interior architecture is a consistent extension of the exterior modern language.

The use of wood paneling, stone, and porcelain tile creates a warm and inviting environment, both for patients, staff, and visitors.
Phase II is a 219,000 SF hospital with 50 patient beds and a separate medical office building. The hospital sits on a hill visible from Interstate 25, with sweeping views of the Rocky Mountain ranges. The public face of the building is a dramatic four-story lobby with well-balanced proportions, actively exposed to natural light. The integration of natural light and art as key design elements in the architecture creates spaces that are unique and builds an ecology that enhances health and wellness.
HuntonBrady designed both the emergency department and hospital in a mountain modern style, a modern interpretation of Rocky Mountain Architecture, and oriented it to take advantage of majestic mountain views that optimize the healing environment for patients and staff.
