Live, work, play.

Colorado has it all.

Outdoor enthusiast? Art aficionado? Sports fan? Colorado is the place where life and work weave seamlessly together. From the Rocky Mountains to small town favorites to the Denver Metro landmarks, working for UCHealth and living in Colorado is the best of both worlds. Colorado has been among the Top 10 states in The Gallup Healthways Well Being Index each year since 2008 and our cities and communities are regularly listed amongst the most desirable places to live and raise a family. In fact, Money Magazine voted Denver the “Best Place to Live in the West” in August, 2015 and in January of 2015 named Fort Collins, Loveland, Thornton, Castle Rock and Longmont as Colorado’s Top Five locations to raise a family.

For the sports enthusiast, we’re also home to five professional sports teams including the NFL Broncos, NBA Nuggets, MLB Colorado Rockies, NHL Avalanche and Major League Soccer’s Colorado Rapids.

Due north of Denver lies beautiful Fort Collins, Loveland and Longmont, home to Colorado State University and gateways to the Rocky Mountains. Here “live, work, play” takes on new meaning as life seamlessly transitions from work to play.

Fort Collins and Loveland boast more than 60 miles of paved trails for commuting and recreation plus miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. For the water enthusiast, there are many local lakes and rivers for boating, paddle boarding or fishing.

Old Town Fort Collins and Loveland offer many locally owned restaurants and more than 20 locally owned but regionally acclaimed microbreweries. Local shopping, farmers’ markets, parks and museums round out the culturally diverse yet small town feel of Northern Colorado.

Longmont, future home to UCHealth’s Long Peak Hospital, was named one of the best places to live in 2014 by 24/7 Wall St. With the Rocky Mountains as its backdrop, Longmont offers small town life only 20 minutes from Denver. Activity abounds on Union Reservoir with more than 700 acres for water enthusiasts.

Walkers, runners, cyclists and anyone who loves to be outside will enjoy the 42 miles of paved trails. A lively downtown with music, art and fine dining rounds out the total Colorado experience.

Head south of Denver and you will find Colorado Springs, home to Garden of the Gods National Park, Pikes Peak and world renowned rock climbing. Colorado Springs, nestled at the base of the Southern Rockies, embodies the Rocky Mountain lifestyle—you live here, you play here.

Colorado Springs offers it all—fishing, rafting, hiking, mountain biking, golfing, or enjoying museums and restaurants—in a scenic landscape. With a population of 600,000, the possibilities are endless. Downtown offers unique and exciting restaurants where you can eat al fresco or next to a warm fire with friends. Colorado Springs also offers some of the most distinctive entertainment in the state. It is home to the Colorado Balloon Classic (an annual hot air balloon festival), the United States Olympic Training Center and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Just north of town sits the United States Air Force Academy, where you can enjoy watching NCAA Division 1 football, men’s and women’s basketball, or even a college level ice hockey game.

Colorado offers it all: outdoor lifestyle, big city amenities and a place to call home.
