Support from community members enables us to bridge gaps in services, accelerate advances in health care, and help thankful patients and families express gratitude. Many critically important services offered to UCHealth patients and families in the Longmont area would not exist without philanthropy.
Board Chair Jane Cox, "I am proud of the UCHealth Longs Peak Hospital Foundation because it is truly making a difference in the lives of our local residents, our neighbors, and our colleagues. I am grateful for our health care workers' resilience and commitment to care for others. Our health care workers are there for us. They are ready whether a patient arrives for the birth of a baby or is facing COVID-19, a stroke, cardiac trouble, cancer, or trauma."
Past Board Chair Larry Stauss, "Giving back to the community, that has given so much to me and my family, is important to me. Quality health care is particularly meaningful to my family: My wife manages the lab at UCHealth Greeley Hospital, and my daughter will graduate from nursing school next May. It's satisfying to know that the accomplishments of Longs Peak Hospital Foundation are bettering the interactions that patients have at our hospital."
"This program (Healthy Hearts) probably saved this young lady from showing up in an emergency room at age 25, feeling terrible and being told that she has kidney disease and needs to start dialysis," said Dr. Margaret Bock, a kidney specialist with Children's Hospital Colorado, where Amelia is being treated
Volunteer Pam Stonecipher, "I gave to the employee scholarship fund so that individuals can continue to further their education in the medical field. It is my belief that we need to continue to see more nurses, as well as every single medical professional, trained for the future. "Certainly, this virus (COVID-19) situation has demonstrated how important it is to support those who choose this vocation and career."
