DENVER -- A planned new digital health campus in north Denver will be called Catalyst, with two tenant companies announced.

“A catalyst is a property that accelerates a transformation already occurring,” Biselli said in an emailed announcement. “Each and every one of the companies that will call Catalyst home is working to transform the digital health industry.”

Biselli said conversations are ongoing with several landowners in the area and due diligence has begun on some specific sites. He said “significant developments” in the selection of a specific site will be announced “over the next couple of weeks.”

The first two companies set to take up residence on the campus will be Telespine and Premier Manufacturing.

“We are very excited to be a part of Prime Health as well as the creation of Catalyst,” said Mark Barnes, CEO of Boulder-based Telespine, which makes a telehealth web app that provides on-demand health coaching for low back pain.

“I believe Catalyst will give us access to needed collaborative and partnership opportunities, as well as any future capital needs as we grow.”

“Premier Manufacturing is elated to be part of the Colorado digital health ecosystem and playing a vital role to the success of the medical innovators that will require manufacturing support,” said Edmond Johnson, Premiere's president.

Biselli announced during the 2015 Digital Health Summit in Denver on Thursday that more than 100,000 square feet of space has been committed to the campus, which represents 11 percent of what is in his pipeline.

The new campus was announced in March with Koelbel and Company enlisted to build it.
