Financial Health of Colorado Hospitals Report

CHA has a longstanding commitment to health care price transparency and a track record that proves a continued commitment to increased consumer education. Under the leadership of the Association’s Board of Trustees, CHA has developed this inaugural report examining the financial health of Colorado hospitals, based on publicly available data from the Medicare Cost Report.

The financial health of Colorado hospitals is mostly strong, although significant variation exists across the state, and one hospital’s experience cannot be generalized across other hospitals. This section addresses overall financial trends among Colorado hospitals, factors that may impact financial performance and key expense categories for all hospitals.
