Through the Colorado
100k Lives Campaign, Colorado hospitals are further
strengthening their patient safety efforts and saving
even more lives. The statewide campaign is part of a
national effort to save 100,000 lives this year, and
every year thereafter, by applying six proven safeguards
in patient care.
Nationwide, nearly 3,000 hospitals are
participating in the 100k Lives campaign. In Colorado,
62 of the state’s 71 acute care hospitals are
participating in the effort.
The Colorado campaign is being supported
Colorado Trust, a grant making foundation dedicated
to advancing the health and well-being of the people
of Colorado. The Trust is proud to partner with the
for Healthcare Improvement and the
Colorado Foundation for Medical Care in this $3.8
million, 18-month effort to help hospitals statewide
to further strengthen their quality improvement systems,
ensuring safe patient care.
