CommonSpirit Health and AdventHealth Announce Plans to Directly Manage Their Health Care Ministries and Services in Colorado, Kansas and Utah

February 14, 2023

Centura Health will continue to serve in its management role throughout the transition

(CENTENNIAL, COLO., ALAMONTE SPRINGS, FLA. and CHICAGO) – Since forming Centura Health as a management company in 1996, CommonSpirit Health and AdventHealth have worked together as sponsoring organizations to meet the health care needs of the communities across Colorado, Kansas and Utah. While this has been a strong partnership for 27 years, CommonSpirit Health and AdventHealth have both grown and evolved over the years as have the health care needs of the communities. The partnership has accomplished so much; yet, it has reached its natural maturity.

CommonSpirit Health and AdventHealth have collaboratively agreed that they can best serve their communities and health care ministries without a partnership - with each organization directly managing their respective care sites which comprise Centura Health. Both organizations are committed to a thoughtful and expeditious transition, and Centura Health will continue in its management role of the hospitals, physician clinics and other care sites throughout the transition. There will be no disruption to patient care.

Following the transition, AdventHealth will operate and manage the 5 Adventist hospitals* and their affiliated clinics in Colorado, while CommonSpirit Health will operate and manage their 15 hospitals** and their affiliated clinics in Colorado, Kansas and Utah. We expect to have additional details in the weeks and months ahead.

CommonSpirit Health and AdventHealth maintain a strong relationship and are united in their commitment to the caregivers and ensuring the communities they serve have access to the best health care during and well beyond this transition.
