Along with community engagement, education, and research, patient care is one of the four pillars undergirding CU Anschutz's 2021-25 Strategic Framework. For the purposes of this strategic process, patient care is defined as:
the provision of patient-focused care and treatment to ensure the well-being of patients. For the purposes of CU Anschutz's strategic priorities and initiatives, the emphasis will be on those patient care activities that emanate from the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. Current examples include (but are not limited to) the DAWN clinic, the Peer Mentored Care Collaborative that includes ECHO and Project CORE, as well as the campus health center, dental clinics, and nursing clinics.
