It's estimated as many as 96,000 people die every year from an infection or a medical mistake they experience after going into the hospital. And almost all of those deaths are preventable. But the chances of that happening at Denver Health are much lower than they were just a few years ago, because this safety net hospital for the poor and uninsured now has the lowest mortality rate of any academic medical center in the country.
