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.
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.
We asked, and you answered. Garth Englund Blood Center has had an amazing response to its requests for blood donations during the pandemic. Read more, and learn about a new opportunity for donating convalescent plasma.
Courage, persistence, determination. These are qualities that define humankind and that will see us through the pandemic. Patients are recovering. Progress in treating COVID-19 is being made. Focusing on the positive helps create the reality we all want to live in. Thus we share these stories.
In the 2 1/2 years since Longs Peak Hospital’s opening, its connection to our community has become strong. That Community connection has been integral in helping bolster and sustain our workers during this challenging time.
As our nurses, staff and providers tackle what may be the toughest few weeks of our careers, we know that we are not alone. We are grateful to have the support of the community. Our community has responded in ways we've never seen before, food deliveries to our hospitals, thank you signs and chalk drawings at every entrance, thousands of emails and messages sharing love and support, and donations of new personal protective equipment or other supplies.
