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.
The generosity of private donors and community business partners, as well as many of our fellow employees, has enabled us to award more than $46,000 in scholarships to 34 UCHealth employees since 2018.
We are deeply grateful for the support our community has provided during the pandemic. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank the individuals and businesses that gave in-kind gifts—supplies, equipment, food, services and more—to support our health care heroes in the battle against COVID-19.
We are grateful to Longmont Community Foundation for two recent grants. The Longmont Community Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of people in Longmont and the surrounding area. Our foundation received grants to help our health workers caring for the community during the COVID-19 pandemic and to provide education for new fathers.
As health care workers treat COVID-19 patients, they face the same disruptions and challenges to everyday life that many others are experiencing because of the pandemic. To support our health care heroes experiencing such challenges, UCHealth established the Health Care Worker Emergency Relief Fund. To date, the fund has assisted 155 of our employees experiencing hardship as a result of COVID-19.
Our community has been incredibly generous to Longs Peak Hospital during the pandemic. Community member and local artist Basia Christ shared her gratitude for our health care heroes in a unique way. She created an 18-inch-by-24-inch acrylic painting titled “We Pray” for Longs Peak Hospital.
On April 27, UCHealth began resuming a limited number of medically necessary surgeries and procedures. The decision is based on careful research and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
We are grateful for the community’s many meal donations to our health care heroes during the pandemic. With the reactivation of additional services at our hospitals, we are tapering off these donations, ending them on May 15, 2020. In lieu of food donations, there are many ways you can help continue the fight against COVID-19.
