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.
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.
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. One such person is Larry Stauss, who became chair of the board last year.
At UCHealth, the culture of philanthropy is strong. Employees donate generously via our employee giving program to support our mission to deliver world-class health care. They also support each other through gifts to employee hardship relief and scholarship funds. Employees of Longs Peak Hospital and its affiliated clinics donated more than $97,000 over the past 12 months to support numerous causes.
The comfort cart at Longs Peak Hospital is funded by individual donors who support Longs Peak Hospital Foundation’s Patient Assistance Fund. The items on the cart are available for staff members to offer for alternative pain management and comfort for our patients.
