Top medical professionals, superior medicine, and progressive change make the University of Colorado Hospital one of the leading hospitals in the nation.
Consistently ranked among the top hospitals in the country by U.S. News & World Report’s annual survey of "America’s Best Hospitals," the University of Colorado Hospital is internationally respected for its exceptional teams of medical specialists. In 2011, 2012 and 2013, the hospital was ranked number one in quality and safety among academic medical centers in the country by the University HealthSystem Consortium.
University of Colorado Hospital is located on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado, which is also home to the University of Colorado clinical schools, multiple institutes and research enterprises, Children's Hospital Colorado, and soon, the Denver VA.
UCH opened new outpatient facilites on the campus in 2001, moved into a new inpatient facility in 2007, and in 2013 opened an additional 12-story inpatient tower, doubling critical-care space such as ORs and ICUs and adding a new ED. The hospital has multiple primary-care facilties in the metropolitan Denver area and is building several satellite speciality and surgical centers. University of Colorado Hospital is part of University of Colorado Health, which includes hospitals in Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, and Laramie, Wyoming. However, the Vascular Fellow will only train at the Aurora site of UCH.
