St. Anthony's Hospital Property Under New Ownership

AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) - On Monday, the historic St. Anthony’s Hospital property was donated to the newly formed nonprofit, St. Anthony’s Legacy and Redevelopment Corp (SALARC). This group of Amarillo residents, many of whom live in the North Heights neighborhood, are excited to continue the intention of the previous owner to see the property once again a vital part of the Amarillo area.  

The mission of SALARC is to invigorate and revitalize underserved communities in Amarillo through entrepreneurial activity, education, social and cultural events, and human services; starting with the neighborhoods around the historic St. Anthony’s Hospital. SALARC is working closely with the North Heights Association on plans for the property.  

“St. Anthony’s Hospital was an anchor institution in Amarillo for nearly a century and countless residents of the Panhandle have been impacted by the services and jobs it provided.  It is a privilege to begin the work of bringing new opportunities and resources to the surrounding communities through this iconic property.”, says Mary Emeny, the president of the SALARC Board.  

"To whom much is given, much is required. That goes both ways and it applies to both SALARC and the community. We are excited to get going!", stated Mildred Darton, SALARC Board member and chair of the North Heights Association.
