Centura Health addressing health care reform issuesPublished 12/22/2009

Gary Campbell, Centura Health president and CEO, has released a short video prompting the input of thousands to help shape the future of health care in Colorado. The three-and-a-half-minute video is the first in a series of quarterly dialogues, reporting on the progress of localized reform initiated by the statewide strategic plan - Centura Health 2020.  
In an effort to ensure that Centura Health is meeting the needs of the communities it serves, Campbell encourages statewide input on how Centura Health can address health care reform against a back drop of cost, access and quality issues that are pervasive throughout health care today.  All responses to will be answered individually by Centura Health and all input will be seen by Campbell.
“We know that our health care system is broken, and as Colorado’s largest health care provider, we feel the urgency to reform health care on a local level. But to truly reform health care, there must be a level of shared responsibility among all of our stakeholders, including individuals, businesses, government, providers and insurers.  It is this sense of collaboration that gave rise to the video, which we hope will be viewed as an invitation to dialogue about how, together, we can fix our health care system in Colorado and create a sustainable model for the future.”
v In an attempt to reform health care on a local level, Centura Health recently announced its first integrated system-wide strategic plan called Centura Health 2020, which is based upon three simple yet powerful principles: build systems of care, move “up stream” and strengthen the foundation.
v Centura Health is committed to strengthening its foundation by being more effective and efficient with network-wide resources, and creating systems of care which provide the right care at the right time at the right place.
v As a health system which provides the full continuum of care from prevention and wellness to end-of-life care, Centura Health believes that prevention, wellness and chronic disease management must be covered and reimbursed.
