We improve lives.
Our not-for-profit hospitals focus on investing resources to improve the lives of our families, friends and neighbors in the Longmont area. Our foundation helps provide value-added services not covered by insurance.
Through the generosity of individual, corporate, and foundation donors, as well as through public grant funding, Longs Peak Hospital Foundation provides funding to support innovative research and education, patient financial assistance, community health programs, and enhancements to patient care.
Private donations from community members enable us to bridge gaps in services, accelerate advances in health care, and help thankful patients and families express gratitude. Many critically important services offered for UCHealth patients and families in the Longmont area would not exist without private donations made through the foundation.
100% of every donated dollar goes to the foundation’s philanthropic funds, with no overhead costs or administrative fees.
Your generosity has helped UCHealth expedite its response to meet our growing community's needs. Our stories herein help demonstrate the power of the gifts you give. When we work together, we bring great things to fruition for our families, our friends, ourselves and our future.
Thanks to donor generosity, Longs Peak Hospital was able to speed up plans to expand its intensive care unit, as well as add state-of-the-art technology to better serve residents of Longmont and the surrounding area. Watch two short videos in which the hospital's president and the ICU's nurse manager discuss the new space.
At Longs Peak Hospital Foundation, our mission is to develop and steward philanthropic resources to improve lives. The Longs Peak Hospital lymphedema clinic, opened through the power of philanthropy, continues to exemplify how donor generosity helps bridge gaps and add value for patients.
Each year, donor generosity enables the foundation to award scholarships to UCHealth employees interested in furthering career-related skills. For our 2020–21 scholarship cycle, $37,000 was awarded to 26 recipients who work at Longs Peak Hospital and its affiliated clinics.
In September, the foundation held a virtual event for donors to hear from Longs Peak Hospital leaders. Lonnie Cramer—president of UCHealth Longs Peak Hospital and Broomfield Hospital—and his leadership team shared ways UCHealth is innovating to ensure the community’s health, provided a COVID-19 update, and offered a review of the foundation’s accomplishments as we reach our third anniversary.
The foundation is fortunate to have community leaders, executives, volunteers and a highly qualified and talented staff devoting time and energy to sustaining our mission for a healthier community. Today we shine our spotlight on board member Elena Sandoval-Lucero, who joined the board in 2018.
We often are asked by our patients, “How can I say thank you to the people who made a difference while I was in the hospital?” Longs Peak Hospital Foundation offers the Grateful Patient Program as a way for patients and their families to do just that.
