Patient testimonials



Heart stories save lives

When patients and doctors catch heart disease early, the most serious outcomes  -- heart attack and death -- can be avoided. These patients told their stories to encourage others to take care of their hearts, learn the risk factors of heart disease and get screened for heart disease.

University of Colorado Health offers an innovative, comprehensive heart program designed to help people live longer, healthier lives. Our team:

  • Is part of Medical Center of the Rockies, where patient satisfaction ratings are better than any other hospital in the region. (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services)
  • Has an emergency response at Medical Center of the Rockies that can get you through our doors and to a lifesaving procedure in nearly half the time of the national standard.
  • Performs twice as many cardiac surgeries as any hospital program in northern Colorado, with a combined heart surgery total of well over 15,000. (Colorado Hospital Association)
  • Leads the region in the number of completed pacemaker implantations. (Colorado Hospital Association)

We take pride in the level of experience, skill and compassionate care we provide, but our most rewarding endorsements come from the many satisfied patients and families we serve.
