(May 2, 2011) Patricia A. Gabow, MD, CEO of Denver Health, won the 2010 David E. Rogers Award from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). "On a daily basis, she performs the health care equivalent of a high-wire balancing act: expanding access to care for Colorado’s most vulnerable populations" while providing excellent care, the AAMC says. The award recognizes medical school faculty (she’s an affiliate faculty member of the CU medical school) who have improved the health and health care of the American people.
And The Denver Post named Bruce Schroffel, president of the University of Colorado Hospital, "Business Person of the Year." A Post article about Schroffel noted that the hospital is expanding even in the face of challenging economic times. "He has a big heart and the ability to get things done," business leader Pete Coors, who helped recruit Schroffel, says of the hospital leader.
