LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – More than 150 patients were moved on Friday from St. Anthony’s Central Hospital to its new facility.

Planning for the move has been going on for more than 2 years. Crews trained for 30,000 hours in preparation for using the new facility and moving patients. About 150 patients were being moved in 20 different ambulances Friday morning.

Adminstrators invested $60 million on new equipment in the facility.
