UCHealth’s metro Denver hospital, University of Colorado Hospital (UCH), is one of the premier academic research institutions in the country. We deliver quaternary (fourth level) care as a part of a consortium of teaching hospitals across the nation.

While UCH is a separate entity from the University of Colorado, we’re part of the University of Colorado campus system, which operates under a total learning environment mission. We are directly linked to the graduate health sciences schools of the University of Colorado Denver through joint and clinical appointments.

  • Providing patient-centric education and cutting-edge research opportunities are important parts of our hospital mission. Our Magnet-designated hospital supports an environment where teaching and research activities are respected. Contributions from dedicated research professionals help us achieve excellence in patient care outcomes.
