Company snapshot: University Physicians Inc. provides business operations and administrative support to the University of Colorado School of Medicine’s 1,600 providers. Adjacent to the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, University Physicians offers a variety of administrative and health-care support career opportunities and serves as a resource for patients and physicians.
Outstanding achievement: University Physicians ensures that every time a faculty physician or health-care provider treats a patient, 10 percent of that clinical revenue is delivered back to the School of Medicine into the Dean’s Academic Enrichment Fund. The fund supports competitive teaching and research programs within the School of Medicine. University Physicians has contributed $23.7 million in direct philanthropic contributions since 1986.
Community connections: University Physicians’ new 184,701-square-foot building, which opened in fall 2010, is home to nearly 300 employees. The project was initiated as a result of the sale of University Physicians’ existing administrative space to the Veteran’s Administration in 2008. The new University Physicians building is the first commercial office development located in the Colorado Sciences and Technology Park, which is adjacent to the Anschutz Medical Campus. The University Physicians building received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certification.
