About Us

Avista Adventist Hospital in Louisville, CO, is a full service, 114-bed acute-care hospital with a medical staff of more than 600 physicians. It consistently ranks among America's top hospitals for patient, physician and employee satisfaction, and has been named one of the nation's top performers on key quality measures by The Joint Commission-one of only five Colorado hospitals to receive this distinction.

Besides providing first-rate critical care services such as emergency and intensive care, Avista is home to the New Life Center-the area's largest Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and most innovative birth center.

The hospital also:

  • Is a recognized leader in joint and spine care
  • Has 32,000-square-feet of surgery suites equipped with some of the world's most advanced technology
  • Has emergency department "door-to-doc" times that are 85% faster than the national average-meaning patients wait less
  • As a Level III trauma center we are part if Centura Health Trauma System, Colorado's largest and most comprehensive network of trauma care and emergency services
  • Has the most advanced cardiac cath lab in Boulder County, where blockages that can lead to heart attack and stroke are diagnosed and treated-and heart attacks can be stopped in their tracks, while they're occurring

Avista is known for its compassionate, whole-person approach to health care, and for its focus on helping patients, families and community members live healthy and fulfilling lives. The hospital operates a network of clinics throughout neighborhoods in Boulder and Broomfield counties.

  • History

    More than 100 years ago, the Seventh-day Adventist church established a sanitarium dedicated to providing healthcare for our community. As time passed, however, we realized that the original facility and location had limitations that would inhibit our ability to grow.

    To respond to this need, in 1990 we opened a new hospital in Louisville, where our beautiful facility now sits on a hill with magnificent views of the Rockies. The community response has been overwhelming, and because of the remarkable growth we've experienced, we have expanded our hospital and we have nearly doubled our size.

    This expansion has increased our capacity, reduced waiting times for several of our critical services and allowed us to add some important new capabilities and technologies.

    Today, Avista Adventist Hospital is a full service acute care hospital with a medical staff of more than 500 physicians. In addition to providing first-rate critical care services (emergency, trauma and intensive care), Avista is the home of the area's leading birthing services.
