About DENVER HEALTH

When you live a mile high, you sometimes need a safety net; that's where Denver Health and Hospital Authority comes in. Though it serves all the people of Colorado's capital, annually attending to a fourth of the city's population and a third of its children, Denver Health is also the "safety net" care provider for the city's indigent, uninsured, mentally – more... ill, and other high-risk patients. The medical system's primary facility is the Denver Health Medical Center, a 400-bed hospital that also houses a regional trauma center. It also includes a network of family health and dental clinics; a poison and drug center; and a 911 response system for Denver County.

Operations

Denver Health's principal facility, Denver Health Medical Center, is a teaching hospital affiliated with the University of Colorado at Denver and is one of the busiest medical centers in the state. The trauma center (known as Rocky Mountain Regional Trauma Center) has Level 1 status and is known for having one of the highest survival rates in the nation. In addition, the hospital operates an ambulance service, a pediatric emergency center, and a terrorism and catastrophe response center.

Denver Health provides medical care at about a dozen K-12 school-based health centers in the city. It also runs a number of public health clinics that offer immunizations, infectious disease treatment, and behavioral health consultation.

Strategy

Denver Health's flagship medical center joined forces with Children's Hospital Colorado in late 2010 to share best practices and resources to expand and improve pediatric care throughout the region. Through the collaboration the two have increased access to pediatric mental health services; they also coordinate recruitment and sharing of highly specialized pediatric providers.

Company Background

Denver Health traces its beginnings back to territorial days in 1860. As Denver General Hospital, it operated as an agency of Denver's city and county governments until 1997, when it became a freestanding authority. – less
