Denver Health is an integrated, efficient, academic health care system that is considered a model for the nation. Denver Health’s Level 1 Trauma Center, in particular, is one of the world’s leading trauma centers and has amongst the highest survival rates in the country. The trauma center sees 18,000 patients annually, 2700 of whom are admitted, and many of whom arrive as transfers from any one of 60 regional hospitals. The trauma service is extraordinarily academically productive with millions in grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and United States Department of Defense (DoD). The seminal text “Trauma” was authored by Denver Health faculty.  

As Colorado’s primary safety net institution, Denver Health provides the full spectrum of medical services from primary to oncologic care. Serving one third of the city of Denver, as well as patients from outside Denver, Denver Health provides primary care services via a citywide network of community health centers, school-based health clinics, and is now in the middle of building a 6-story 293,000 square foot outpatient medical center. Inpatient services are housed in multiple campus buildings with 555 pediatric, adult, and OB/GYN beds. Denver Health is committed to serving all patients, regardless of the ability to pay.  

Denver Health is affiliated with the University of Colorado School of Medicine. All faculty at Denver Health have University appointments, and some also deliver care at the University campus as well. Faculty have access to the academic and cultural resources of Denver Health and the University.
