New St. Anthony Hospital Opens Without Obstetrics Program

The long anticipated St. Anthony hospital held its grand opening in Lakewood on Monday. It’s taken seven years to plan and build the 450 million dollar facility, which includes everything from level one trauma care, oncology, orthopedics, and an expanded emergency room. But there’s one major service that won’t be offered – labor and delivery.
