Denver, CO, September 21, 2018 – Rose Medical Center Registered Nurse Liz Harms has been selected to appear in 50 Voices of HCA Healthcare, a book published in recognition of HCA Healthcare’s 50th anniversary.

Rose Medical is a part of HCA Healthcare, which was founded in 1968 with a commitment to provide superior healthcare with warmth and compassion for patients, colleagues and communities. Published in recognition of the organization’s 50th anniversary, 50 Voices of HCA Healthcare is a celebration of that commitment and culture.

Liz was honored in 2016 by Rose and HCA as a Frist Humanitarian Award Winner. After being diagnosed with colon cancer at 34-years-old, she made the decision to triumph over the illness by sharing her personal journey in the most positive way. Liz helped organize the Denver chapter of Stupid Cancer, the largest charity addressing young-adult cancers, and served as Rose’s captain for the Undie 500, a run/walk held to increase colorectal cancer awareness. She is serving as a Denver First Descents member for an organization that offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors a free outdoor adventure experience designed to empower them to defy their diagnosis and reclaim their lives. She also participated in the 2016 Colon Club calendar, which features young colon cancer survivors whose beauty, energy and bravery prove that cancer can be overcome. Liz volunteers at numerous health fairs, and she has taken her message about cancer treatment and funding to Congress—all of this in addition to her responsibilities as a mother, a dedicated employee and a graduate student.

The 50 interviews included in 50 Voices of HCA Healthcare showcase unique stories like this one. These stories focus on dedication to innovation, teamwork, quality and compassion, which exemplify the values that have given HCA Healthcare its strength and longevity. Though their roles, locations and backgrounds are diverse, these voices resonate with a collective commitment to patient-centered care.

As HCA Healthcare begins its next 50 years, it will continue to be shaped by individuals like Harms and the other colleagues, volunteers, physicians and retirees featured in the book.
