Other Industry Highlights:
A Statewide Culture of Health and Wellness
A healthy bottom line starts with healthy workers! Colorado is the leanest state in the U.S. with the nation’s lowest rate of adult obesity (21.3 percent). Metro Denver ranked as the fourth-fittest metro area in the nation in 2014. Lone Tree’s healthy employees are more productive and
active—which costs an average of $4,000 less each year in health care costs than unhealthy employees (University of Michigan Health Management Research Center, 2013).
Healthcare Education and Research
The University of Colorado School of Medicine ranked 13th nationally for primary care and 40th among research-oriented programs, according to U.S. News & World Report in 2014.
University of Colorado South Denver and the University of Phoenix in Lone Tree provide exceptional nursing programs for Lone Tree's growing health care workforce. Rocky Vista University in Parker is Colorado's only Osteopathic medical school, and is just down the road from Lone Tree.
