Denver Health and Hospital Authority

Denver Health and Hospital Authority (the “Authority”) was created by the Colorado legislature as a body corporate and political subdivision of the State of Colorado pursuant to Colorado Revised Statutes § 25-29-101, et seq. (the “Act”). The Authority began operations on January 1, 1997 after having separated from the City and County of Denver (“the City”). On January 1, 1997, the City transferred substantially all of the healthcare programs, services and facilities of the City’s former Department of Health and Hospitals to the Authority. The Authority is governed by an eleven-member Board of Directors that is responsible for the operation of the Authority’s health system, including the Denver Health Medical Center.
