Centura merges senior services, home healthPublished 6/23/2009

Centura Health, Colorado’s largest health care provider, recently announced the merger of two of its operating entities, Centura Health Senior Services and Centura Health at Home.
The merger supports the organization’s strategic initiatives and allows for expansion of services by providing an integrated network of home care and senior care.
“This restructuring combines two existing divisions that focus on providing health care services in peoples homes,” said Gary Campbell, president and chief executive officer.
“It will provide Centura Health with the opportunity to coordinate and extend the reach of our organization into the communities we serve, and into the actual residences of the people we serve.”
Centura Health Senior Living Communities and Centura Health at Home span the front range of Colorado including Boulder County, Denver, Summit County, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Durango and Cañon City.
Nursing homes, adult day care, independent living, assisted living, Alzheimer’s care and respite care along with home, hospice and bereavement care, infusion therapy, oxygen and home medical equipment are among the services provided.
According to Campbell, Erin Denholm, Centura Health at Home president and chief executive officer, will continue to lead the newly enhanced Centura Health at Home. Nancy Stokes, Centura Health Senior Services chief financial officer has been named chief operating officer.
Denholm received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Mt. St. Joseph, her Master of Science in Nursing from Regis University and joined Centura as the Director of Home Care for the PorterCare Hospital system in 1995.
She was responsible for the consolidation of the home care, infusion and hospice operations for the Denver metropolitan service area before she was promoted to Centura Health at Home Chief Executive Officer overseeing home care, hospice, home infusion, home oxygen and home medical equipment for the entire state.
Stokes received her Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Regis University and has worked in the healthcare industry for more than 20 years.
Her career with Centura Health began at Porter Adventist Hospital in 1991.
She has held numerous financial leadership roles during her tenure at Centura.
Most recently, she served as the Chief Financial Officer for the Senior Services Division.
Colorado’s largest health care provider, the Centura Health family includes 12 hospitals, seven senior living residences, medical clinics, Flight For Life and home care and hospice services.
A nonprofit, faith-based organization, Centura Health is a joint venture organization that was formed in 1996 by Catholic Health Initiatives Colorado and Adventist Health System.
