2016 COMMUNITY BENEFIT REPORT Investing in Community As a nonprofit pediatric hospital, Children’s Hospital Colorado reinvests all positive hospital margins into the health and well-being of children. This investment is often in the form of “community benefit”— activities that went beyond caring for patients and made an impact on our community at-large. In 2016, we proudly reported more than $190,012,653 in community benefit activities. Targeted efforts To effectively focus these activities, Children’s Hospital Colorado launched the Community Health Action Plan, which defines how we will address the six main child health challenges identified in the 2015 Community Health Needs Assessment, in targeted zip codes, over the next three years.
