Study estimates VNA’s economic impact
A recent report from the Colorado Community Health Network found that the state’s 18 Community Health Centers serve more than 600,000 patients and together injected $735 million into the state’s economy in 2011. The study found Northwest Colorado VNA “injected $8.1 million of operating expenses into the local economy.” According to the report, the VNA here supported 24 full-time local jobs and created 32 jobs as a result of those operating expenditures that year.
