Denver Health Lean Academy Hosts Brazilian Cancer Society Site Visit

Thursday, March 27, 2014

The 10th International Course of the Brazilian Cancer Society recently came to Colorado and spent a week visiting sites at University of Colorado Hospital and Denver Health Medical Center. Denver Health Lean Academy hosted a one day symposium for 40 members of the Brazilian Cancer Society on February 19, 2014, discussing Lean tools and principles. Fernando Kim, MD, FACS of Denver Health, along with multiple members of the executive staff as well as Denver Health providers, shared their stories and successes of Lean throughout the day. The group also toured multiple areas of the hospital's main campus to observe employees using Lean tools and concepts in the organization. Denver Health's Lean Program began in 2005 and has resulted in a wide range of successes and recognition, including the Shingo Bronze Medallion for Operational Excellence in 2011. Denver Health Lean Academy offers multiple programs for any level of Lean experience or background. For more information, please visit Lean Academy Workshops or contact
