About Our Orthopedic Specialty Hospital

OrthoColorado Hospital is a joint venture between physician investors and Centura Health. This unique partnership offers a lot of benefits for our patients. With our strong physician leadership we are able to create the safest environment for our patients. Our physician investors reside in the Denver Metro area community, practicing at Panorama Orthopedics and Spine Center and Precision Orthopedics. Together with the strong mission of Centura Health and our physician investors, these healthcare leaders share a vision for creating a premier orthopedic specialty hospital to serve the Rocky Mountain region.

Our entire facility was design to meet the unique needs of the orthopedic patient. Everything from our 8 surgical suites, to our 48 in-patient rooms, and our on-site services have the focus of orthopedics. Our Pre-Admission Testing and Teaching Department composed of a team of pre-operative nurses provide individualized pre-operative screenings for each patient prior to their surgery. We offer on-site pain control with our team of anesthesiologists and CRNA’s. We have a team of respiratory therapists working with our nurses to monitor patients post-operatively, and even massage therapists on-site to help calm patients pre and post operatively.

Our Mission

OrthoColorado Hospital is dedicated to providing advanced orthopedic and spine care with an unsurpassed level of service to help patients achieve the best quality of life. Our team of physicians, nurses and staff members work collaboratively to support the healing ministry of Christ by caring for those who are ill and by nurturing the health of the people in our communities.

  • An Extraordinary Patient Experience

    Every detail within OrthoColorado Hospital has been designed to enhance the patient experience and create a true place of wellness and healing. Experts say there are seven criteria that must come together to create a true place of healing. These are nature, color, light, environment, security, wayfinding and culture. All of these have been explored and included in the creation of this new hospital.

    Here are some highlights:

    • OrthoColorado Hospital's commitment to provide a five-star patient experience begins at the front portico. Outside, heated sidewalks counter Colorado's ice and snow. Inside, nature-inspired surfaces and water elements create a sense of calm.
    • Private and small-group preoperative sessions will prepare patients and their "coaches" to be empowered participants in the healing process. The dedicated education room features an advanced audiovisual system with special listening devices for the hearing impaired.
    • Each of the 48 private patient rooms at the hospital is designed with the special care and comfort needs of the orthopedic patient in mind. Many feature state-of-the-art LikoTM lifting systems to assure safe movement and transfer of all patients. 
    • The entire campus has been designed with 'smart building' technology to reduce energy usage and maintenance costs. There's an 'intelligent' network that monitors and coordinates all mechanical and lighting functions. It also supports 'light harvesting'-so that artificial lights in an area dim as natural light increases.
    • This is the first hospital in the state to implement the TransVac System that reduces infection risks and enhances efficiency. Hospital staff can place waste, linens and recyclables into the totally sealed tubes at centrally located locations on each floor. These items are then transported directly - at 60 mph! - via the tube system to laundry or waste management service points.
