HealthONE purchased a 10.75-acre parcel of land from the west side of the RidgeGate community in Lone Tree
HealthONE purchased a 10.75-acre parcel of land from the west side of the RidgeGate community in Lone Tree for the continued expansion of Sky Ridge Medical Center and to meet ongoing demand for new services and programs at the hospital.
“We are pleased to have HealthONE 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,” says Keith Simon, executive vice president and director of development for Coventry Development Corporation, the master developer for RidgeGate.
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,” says Kirk McCarty, Sky Ridge Medical Center’s new president and chief executive officer.

As part of the HealthONE system of care, The Medical Center of Aurora, North Suburban Medical Center, Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center, Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, Rose Medical Center, Sky Ridge Medical Center, Swedish Medical Center and Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital work together to provide a higher level of care.
