University of Colorado Hospital | 100 Great Hospitals in America 2015

University of Colorado Hospital (Aurora). The flagship facility of University of Colorado Health, this academic medical center — the only one in the region — is the No. 1 hospital in Colorado, according to the most recent rankings from U.S. News & World Report. All providers at UCH are faculty members at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, keeping up-to-speed with the latest research and medical treatments.

In addition to being the state's No. 1 hospital, UCH is also nationally ranked in nine specialties by U.S. News & World, including being No. 2 for pulmonology and No. 15 for cancer. In fact, UCH is a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. It is also Magnet recognized for excellence in nursing by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

The first liver transplant in the world was performed by a surgeon at UCH in 1963. Now, after the liver transplant program was reestablished in 1988, the UCH Transplant Center and its partner, Children's Hospital Colorado, celebrated a combined 2,000th liver transplant in March.

In their own words

Top medical professionals, superior medicine and progressive change make University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) one of the leading hospitals in the nation.

UCH is the region's only academic hospital. Academic hospitals tend to be the first in their regions - and often in the nation - to bring new treatments to the bedside.

All the providers at UCH serve as faculty members at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, one of the premier academic research institutions in the country. They are at the forefront of new research and medical treatments.

Because they transfer that advanced knowledge in our collaborative teams of experts and specialists, our providers can often help patients in ways other hospitals cannot.
