CCHA is a collaborative partnership that was formed in 2010 between three organizations, all bringing unique expertise and serving a critical role in the health neighborhood. Ownership in CCHA is primarily held by a non-profit hospital system and a large primary care physician group, with management support provided by a primary care management services organization.
Centura Health, a non-profit organization, is the region’s largest health care system. Centura meets the wellness needs of more than a half million people each year through a broad network including 17 hospitals, 12 affiliate hospitals, health neighborhoods, health at home, urgent care centers and emergency rooms, mountain clinics, 100+ physician practices and clinics, and Flight for Life® Colorado. Centura’s strength lies in their ability to offer a connected network and shared resources to deliver accessible, reliable, and cost-effective health care across Colorado.
Primary Physician Partners (PPP) is a primary care independent practice association (IPA) comprised of more than 230 physicians and mid-level providers focused on family medicine, internal medicine and geriatrics.
