Colorado Healthy Hospital Compact

Grand River Health is working to contribute to Governor John Hickenlooper’s goal of making Colorado “the healthiest state” and reducing obesity by participating in the Colorado Healthy Hospital Compact (CHHC). With the CHHC, hospitals achieve higher levels of recognition by offering more healthy food and beverage options and heavily promoting those options through signage and discounts.

Grand River Health is currently at bronze level status and seeks to achieve silver level status by 2019.

As part of the CHHC, the Grand River Café includes a stoplight system to guide healthy food choices. Based on the CHHC criteria, food items are labeled with a red, yellow or green dot or with salad tongs in red, yellow or green.

  • Red indicates foods we should eat rarely
  • Yellow indicates foods we should eat sometimes
  • Green indicates foods we should eat often
