The Heritage of Centura Health
For more than 100 years, Centura Health hospitals and services have been helping people live healthier, longer lives. Our sponsors-Catholic Health Initiatives and Adventist Health System-have long provided loving, leading edge care to those in need throughout Colorado.
The Catholic community is renowned for its history of helping heal those who have nowhere else to turn. And for years, Seventh-day Adventists have promoted whole person care and healthier lifestyles. Together these two organizations have forged an organization unlike any other.
Centura Health facilities have pioneered many new health care technologies and services in Colorado, such as establishing Flight For Life, the nation's first civilian air ambulance service, and launching a pilot telehealth program for congestive heart failure patients.
