Catholic Health Initiatives Named Top Health Care Company in Colorado


Catholic Health Initiatives has won the 2005 Top Company Award in the health care category from Colorado Biz magazine. The award was announced September 8 in Denver, Colo. The award was presented by UMB Bank, along with premier sponsors Deloitte, Colorado Biz, 9 News, Frontier Airlines and Holland & Hart. The Top Company Awards program was established in 1988 to recognize Colorado-based companies whose financial excellence, operations excellence and commitment to the community set the standard for business. Judges select the top three applicants in each of nine categories, then select winners from the finalists. "Top Company is a difficult competition to win, as dozens of Colorado businesses submit nominations each year," said Michael Fordyce, chief administrative officer. "While operational performance is a factor, commitment to the community is of equal weight. This exciting recognition demonstrates the value of our employees and how they live our values each day through their commitment to all of the communities we serve."
