Anne Warhover

President and CEO, Colorado Health Foundation

As president and CEO of the Colorado Health Foundation, Anne Warhover guides the organization’s strategic direction and oversees more than 100 employees in their efforts to make Colorado the healthiest state in the nation.

In 2011, she led a divestiture to sell the Foundation’s 40 percent ownership stake in the HCA-HealthONE hospital system for $1.45 billion. As a result of that transaction, the Foundation is now one of the largest health focused foundations in the country, with $2.2 billion in assets.

Since 2004, Warhover has been instrumental in working with the Foundation’s Board to focus the organization’s efforts on three outcomes: encouraging healthy living; increasing the number of Coloradans with health insurance; and ensuring they have access to affordable, integrated primary care. The Foundation’s methodology includes an accountability model that ties “measureable results” to its grantmaking to ensure a healthy social return on investment.

Warhover serves on the boards of Visit Denver, the Center for Effective Philanthropy, Grantmakers in Health, Rocky Mountain Health Plans and LiveWell Colorado.
