What’s in it for patients?
University of Colorado Health hospitals and clinics now include the widest, most expert choices of primary care physicians, Magnet nurses, convenient locations, access to life-enhancing clinical trials, advanced medical procedures and newly proven treatments in the region.
Our patients are typically the first in the region – and sometimes the nation – to get the latest in proven therapies bubbling up from the country’s research institutions.
Other benefits include:
- The combining of academic-based and community-focused medicine, bringing innovative and leading-edge care to patients throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
- Being able to call on the collaborative care of the deepest bench of medical specialists in the region, especially in quickly advancing areas such as oncology, cardiovascular surgery, the neurosciences and the biosciences.
- Top-quality training sites for the next generation of health care professionals eager to meet the needs of diverse populations from the Front Range to rural areas across the Eastern Plains.
- More opportunities for people in underserved and non-urban areas to get family and complex care.
Do you have to change doctors?
No. Your physician will stay your physician for as long as you choose.
The difference: he or she now has the backing of the region’s largest assemblage of clinical and research expertise, and a record of medical outcomes well above state and national averages.
