Regis University and HealthONE Forge Partnership


Trusted institutions collaborate to provide educational opportunities and foster healthcare workforce growth.

Denver, CO, July 18, 2020 --(PR.com)-- Regis University and HealthONE, the metro Denver area’s largest healthcare system, have partnered to create a Health Careers Collaborative that will enhance educational and professional development opportunities, build a workforce equipped to meet the healthcare needs of this growing state, and create healthier communities across Colorado.

The collaboration between two mission-driven organizations will enhance quality of care for patients, support career growth for aspiring and current clinicians, and provide students with critical, hands-on experience in a variety of healthcare fields. HealthONE will award five need-based scholarships of $10,000 each to new students from under-represented communities.

Regis, which has schools of nursing, pharmacy and physical therapy and divisions of counseling and family therapy and health services education, will be an educational partner with HealthONE, including offering scholarships and discounted tuition to HealthONE employees. At the same time, Regis students will gain valuable experience, working alongside skilled professionals in placements including clinical rotations at HealthONE’s acute-care hospitals.

The partnership will create internship opportunities in healthcare administration, pharmacy, physical and occupational therapy, counseling and family therapy, quality and risk-management and leadership education. During the next three years, HealthONE and Regis leaders plan to increase the number of clinical placements for students across HealthONE.

“In creating those opportunities, the collaboration will help address a growing scarcity of healthcare providers and assist in facilitating expansion of high-demand programs in nursing,” said Linda Osterlund, academic dean of Regis’ Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions.

Current HealthONE employees will benefit as well, with opportunities to pursue career development, including advanced degrees, at reduced tuition in Regis healthcare programs. In addition, the former Swedish Medical Center Auxiliary has provided the University with a $300,000 endowed scholarship for current Swedish Medical Center employees who wish to advance their health professions education at Regis.

“The partnership with Regis University is a testament not only to our desire to serve the community, but also our earnest commitment to ensuring our hospitals and healthcare facilities are staffed with the highest-caliber colleagues,” said Sylvia Young, president and CEO of HealthONE. “We are proud of this unique, forward-thinking collaboration that will ultimately benefit our patients and our staff.”

The collaboration will provide opportunities for HealthONE employees to join in furthering Regis University’s mission of service. “We will be opening our service learning opportunities, such as participating in the 9Health Fair, to HealthONE employees,” Osterlund said.

HealthONE will spotlight opportunities provided by the collaborative at benefit fairs and professional development courses for employees, while Regis will promote the collaboration at career fairs. HealthONE also will host a Regis University Day, aimed at hospital leaders, recruiters, and employees from both partners, at its Center for Clinical Advancement in Englewood.
