At UCHealth, we do things differently.

We strive to promote individual and community health and leave no question unanswered along the way. We’re driven to improve and optimize health care.

Our network of nationally-recognized hospitals, clinic locations and health care providers extends throughout Colorado, southern Wyoming and western Nebraska. We deliver excellent care close to home, no matter where you might live.

Our success is defined by more than our patient volumes or treatment outcomes. It’s about building a team of exceptional people, from our clinical staff to our expert physicians, who consistently do what is right for the individuals we are honored to serve.

Facts about UCHealth

UCHealth distinctions

At UCHealth we measure success first by patient outcomes and satisfaction. With an academic medical center at our core, we have at hand the newest technologies and the latest proven treatments – but those advantages mean little unless we have helped you regain a level of wellness that opens you to life’s possibilities.

We serve the people of Colorado and the nation with the very latest in patient and family-centered care and service. Over the years UCHealth facilities and programs have earned – and continue to earn – numerous awards and recognitions:

  • Four consecutive Magnet® designations by the American Nurses Credentialing Center
  • Multiple rankings among the best hospitals in the country by US News & World Report
  • Multiple Nightingale Award winners for excellence in nursing care
  • Medical outcomes above state averages in many areas
  • Deep involvement in implementing Institute for Healthcare Improvement, patient safety, and clinical quality initiatives
  • Recognized as a Level 10 "most wired" health care organization by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHiME).
