At UCHealth, we do things differently

We believe in something different: a focus on the individuality of every person. In big ways and small, we exist to improve the extraordinary lives of all those we serve. As Colorado's largest and most innovative health care system, we as a team deliver on the commitment to provide the best possible experience for our patients and their families. We foster a true human connection and give people the freedom to live extraordinary lives. A career at UCHealth is more than a job- It's a passion.


With views of the Denver city skyline to the north and the majestic Rocky Mountains to the west, Highlands Ranch provides the best of both worlds. It's not surprising that it made Time Money's list of top 6 places to live in 2016 - this quaint town sits just 12 miles outside the bustling Denver metro area, yet offers over 70 miles of trails, 20 parks, and 2 golf courses. Community events like Kid Fest, ice cream socials, open-air artist meet and greets, and the Summer's Sunset Concert can engage the whole family. Spend an evening watching the sun set behind Chatfield Reservoir, strolling the botanic gardens, or socializing at one of Highlands Ranch's very own breweries. Its 2,500 acres of preserved open space means that Highlands Ranch will always remain a picturesque retreat tucked away on the outskirts of Colorado's biggest city.
