Centura Health 2020

   

The Centura Health 2020 Strategic Plan - our plan for creating a stronger and healthier tomorrow.

At Centura Health - Colorado's largest hospital and health care system - we recognize the challenges faced by today's health care providers, which is why we launched a system-wide strategic plan to improve the quality, consistency, availability and affordability of health care to communities throughout Colorado.

Centura Health 2020 (CH2020) charts the course for the future of health care in our state. We collaborated with thousands of Centura Health key stakeholders, including physicians, associates, patients and caregivers, major employers and rural residents, to map out the CH2020 Plan.

Aimed at creating a more consumer-centric environment for health care, CH2020 raises our bar for delivering extraordinary care in Colorado. There are three main components to the CH2020 Plan: strengthen our foundation, create systems of care and move upstream to manage health. 

Create Systems of Care

Centura Health's "System of Care" currently consists of 12 hospitals, seven senior living communities, 55 medical clinics, seven surgery centers, nine imaging centers, Flight For Life® Colorado and home care and hospice services. As the largest health care network in Colorado, we are afforded with the unique opportunity to provide coordinated care delivery systems throughout Colorado by utilizing our network and shared resources.

CH2020 operationally aligns our system to evolve from centers of care (individual hospitals) to a complete system of care, looking to each facility and entity in the Centura Health family to share best practices and improve overall efficiency and communication system-wide from birth to home care.

Move Upstream to Manage Health

Our Mission has always been to improve the health of the people in our communities. CH2020 further enables Centura Health to fulfill our mission as we go beyond providing the best possible illness care to providing wellness care, thereby potentially reducing health care costs by helping patients to maintain good health.

In addition, CH2020 has a major focus on growing the level of support and outreach provided to rural communities throughout Colorado via state-of-the-art technology, including the Connected Care program, and through partnerships that expand health care access. Colorado is a rural State - 47 of 64 counties are rural - and it is our responsibility to bring accessible, affordable and quality care to those hard-to-reach places.

Strengthen the Foundation

We are more than 13,000 people committed to improving the quality, cost and coordination of health care in Colorado-our ongoing effort is to strengthen the foundation of Centura Health. As part of that commitment, we have invested more than $700 million in critical technologies including:

  • The da Vinci Surgical System - for minimally-invasive surgical procedures
  • CyberKnife - a non-surgical alternative to cancer treatment with no incisions, anesthesia or inpatient hospital stay and little or no side effects
  • Novalis Tx TM & RapidArcTM radiotherapy technology - the safest, fastest cancer treatment in the Denver region
  • Varian Trilogy medical linear accelerator - providing advanced treatments that concentrate more dose on tumors, protecting surrounding healthy tissue.
  • An electronic medical records system.

With advanced medical technology, such as the da Vinci Surgical System, CyberKnife and Novalis TXTM & RapidArcTM, patients are able to resume their normal lives with a quicker recovery and hospital stays are reduced by as much as 60 percent.  

CH2020 serves as a catalyst for Centura Health to continue investing in technology advancements that improve the quality, cost and coordination of care throughout Colorado. A particular emphasis is the establishment of electronic health records linking our physicians, clinics, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and home care services.
