Hospitals: Here for You
As cornerstone institutions in our communities, Colorado hospitals and health systems take pride in taking expert care of our patients, our communities, and our workforces.
Through the “Hospitals: Here for You” campaign, CHA highlights the good work of member hospitals and health systems. By showcasing everything from clinical excellence to improvements in health care affordability to community benefit to workforce support programs, the Association aims to educate Coloradans about the impact hospitals and health systems make every day.
All day. Every day.
In a world of seemingly escalating emergencies, you never know what might happen next. That’s why hospitals train and prepare to be ready for anything – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, hospitals are here for you.
As part of our accreditation with CMS, hospitals are required to undergo two emergency preparedness drills every year. This keeps us ready to handle any emergency, natural or man-made. Here's just one example.
Throughout the pandemic, hospitals leaned on each other to transfer patients through the Combined Hospital Transfer Center. This system ensured that every patient in Colorado could access the level of care they needed when hospital capacity was threatened.
Through COVID, hospitals stepped up to partner with local public health agencies to keep our communities safe. Don't miss this spotlight on Pagosa Springs Medical Center and how they how they supported public health in their community.
