UCHealth’s commitment to the communities we serve
UCHealth combines the strengths of the region’s best academic and community hospitals, along with access to clinics throughout the Front Range to improve the lives of patients and their families in Colorado and beyond.
In our 2017, fiscal year (July 1, 2016–June 30, 2017), we invested $647 million in programs, facilities, subsidies, research and more in communities across all regions. It’s part of our commitment to help as many people as possible live an extraordinary life.
Our efforts focused on many issues facing our communities, including these pressing needs:
- Bolstering programs and partnerships to boost suicide prevention and behavioral health resources.
- Institute new programs and technology to curb opioid addiction and abuse.
- Improve access to resources, including subsidizing care and opening new points of communication.
- Creating awareness and educating communities on the importance of cardiovascular health.
