ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Nov. 21, 2022 – Craig Hospital, a world-renowned neurorehabilitation and research hospital for people who have sustained spinal cord and/or brain injuries (SCI/BI), has been named by The Civic 50 Colorado as one of the most community-minded companies in Colorado for the second year in a row.
An initiative by CSR Solutions of Colorado and Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, The Civic 50 Colorado recognizes the 50 most community-minded companies in the state each year through an annual survey independently administered by True Impact.
Recognized for the dedication of time, talent and resources that drive social impact in their company and community, the selection of Colorado’s top 50 companies is based on four disciplines of community engagement: investment of resources, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems, and impact measurement.
“We are honored to be recognized again this year for not only the good work that we do inside Craig but also outside the walls to help our community restore itself after the pandemic and thrive once again,” said Diane Reinhard, Craig Hospital’s vice president of hospital services and community impact. “As a health care provider, we are committed to our responsibility for those we care for in our hospital as well as our responsibility for our community’s health. We want to see people in our community thriving because they have food, housing and access to health care.”
The team at Craig Hospital is rooted in the understanding that improved health outcomes are not achieved in isolation. Instead, joint planning, robust partnerships and collaboration with a wide array of others are critical to improving health outcomes for its community.
Every year, Craig Hospital contributes time and financial resources to organizations that foster independence and access to care for those living with spinal cord and/or brain injury, including supporting greater access to healthcare; integrative therapies; home modifications; recreation, sports and arts programs; and meaningful participation in community. The hospital also lends community support in the areas of education, homelessness and food insecurity.
Reinhard continues, “By using the expertise of our staff and organization, we have the opportunity to extend health into the community through sharing our knowledge, resources and time and addressing the most pressing social determinants of health.”
