Colorado is so much more than thin air. We’re home to meaty research that aims to solve the world’s most challenging healthcare issues.
Take, for instance, Children’s Hospital Colorado, which has been ranked for more than a decade as one of the best children’s hospitals in the nation. And PharmaJet, which is creating a needle-free injector that will replace syringes that are used all over the world.
The list of accolades goes on.
These are just two of the 16,400 companies in a vibrant and ever-expanding industry that brings together 330,000 workers, bankrolling a $17.4 billion annual payroll.
Our experience speaks volumes, and our collaborative approach to innovative thinking has proven successful in preventing, treating and curing diseases.
Since Coloradans are some of the nation’s fittest people, it’s no wonder that a robust array of general healthcare practitioners of all types flock here. We embrace a holistic approach to wellness, and the nation’s wellness transformation starts here.
