1 comment
On Tuesday, University of Colorado Health (UCH) will report to City Council all the good things that have happened at city-owned Memorial Hospital since the city leased it to UCH in 2012.

Besides investing $130 million, UCH touts these achievements in 2016 alone:
• First in southern Colorado to perform Watchman cardiac procedure – August 2016
• First in southern Colorado to use dissolvable stent in heart procedure – October 2016
• Now providing advanced care for all stroke patients, 24/7, reducing the need for these patients in the Pikes Peak region to be airlifted to Denver
• Began performing TAVRs – minimally invasive cardiac procedures to repair heart valves, eliminating need for open heart surgeries in many patients
• Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit providing care
UCH reports that Memorial provided $71.4 million, a 37 percent increase from fiscal year 2015, in uncompensated/charity care.
