Rural Network Program

HealthONE is committed to providing access to specialty medical care for our rural neighbors in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Montana, New Mexico and Wyoming.

Helping patients find care close to home

HealthONE’s Rural Network provides the highest level of quality specialty care to patients and is committed to helping patients stay close to home for their healthcare.

Long before the pandemic launched telehealth into popularity, HealthONE was using this technology to provide healthcare consultations to our rural neighbors across Colorado and a six-state region. In 2022, we completed more than 1,500 clinic days in rural communities and provided over 4,700 telehealth consultations to rural hospitals, helping patients access our award-winning health care, close to home. We also cared for over 70,000 patients from communities outside of Denver.

With HealthONE’s nationally recognized stroke treatment programs, we have developed one of the most successful virtual tele-stroke networks as part of the Rural Network. In 2022, we helped our rural partners retain more than 70 percent of patients who received a tele-stroke consultation, providing patients access to highly specialized care quickly, without having to leave their immediate communities.
