Recruiting Diverse Candidates

Denver Health’s mission is to improve the health of our community by providing level one care for all. Having a staff that is diverse and inclusive enables us to understand and meet the needs of patients from a variety of backgrounds and is fundamental to our success and excellence.

The recruitment department at Denver Health embraces and values different backgrounds, cultures, races, genders, religions, national origins, ages, physical and cognitive capabilities, sexual orientations and other ways individuals identify themselves. Building a diverse workforce to serve and represent our community is one element central to providing the highest quality, patient-centered care.

A range of backgrounds and perspectives leads to a variety of ideas, knowledge and approaches from which decisions are made. A staff reflective of the patient population results in improved access to care, patient-provider communication, patient satisfaction and health outcomes. All members of the Denver Health community, including providers and patients, benefit from a diverse environment focused on delivering the highest quality health care. We hope all feel welcome at Denver Health.
