Kaiser commits $10M to Denver Health

Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente is committing $10 million to support Denver Health as the Colorado system navigates unprecedented financial pressures. 

Denver Health provides care for nearly 30 percent of the city's population every year and is the city's primary safety-net hospital. Last year, the system provided $120 million in uncompensated care, up from $60 million in 2020, according to a May 30 news release from the health systems. At the same time, costs have risen significantly.

Kaiser is providing Denver Health with a $5 million grant to support "vital healthcare services," including primary and specialty care to patients who cannot pay, and has committed another $5 million as a matching donation to incentivize local organizations and community members to support the health system. 

Kaiser Permanente is the largest nonprofit health plan in Colorado.
