Margot and Lisa

We both started out as clinical nurses but offers too good to pass up tracked us to the business side of health care.

One thing we both learned during all those years in business was that the preventive side of healthcare was either undervalued or missing entirely.

Our paths crossed when we both served on the Steering Committee of the University of Colorado’s Women’s Health Center. Prevention was part of the Center’s mission, and naturally like-minded, we decided that there had to be a better business solution to preventive care. We also decided that the solution needed more than early warning. It also needed to be accessible and include patient education.

So, in 2004 we founded LifeHealth. The company was self-funded and had a staff of two – us.

LifeHealth in the Beginning

LifeHealth was the very definition of “entrepreneurial”. We started with bone density screenings, added finger-stick blood work, then flu shots – and kept growing from there. Our business customers were excited and wanted more, so as time went on, we added more clinical preventive services.

All of these services were provided, soup to nuts, by the two of us. We booked and ran the events and did all the health education. During that time, we packed a lot of boxes, hauled tons of supplies in our personal cars, and set-up each and every clinic. Despite the work involved we had to respond to every growth opportunity. And self-financed, we had to personally take the financial risk of making mistakes. Hours were long, and either fabulous success or dismal failure seemed always to be just around the corner.

LifeHealth Today

Over the past 18 years, then, LifeHealth has come a long way. Fulfilling our dream of accessible, comprehensive healthcare support services, we now employ full time and part-time clinicians and providers of multiple medical, dental, and behavioral healthcare specialties nationwide.

As such, we strictly adhere to our Corporate Vision & Mission:

Vision Statement

Be a leader in healthcare by providing the highest quality clinical and non-clinical support services and solutions.

Mission Statement

LifeHealth strives to provide our customers high-quality, value-added solutions that meet their business requirements. We do so by being flexible, innovative and responsive.

We conduct our company ethically with demonstrated corporate leadership. We are characterized by fair treatment, teamwork, open communications, staff accountability, and career opportunities for personnel growth and development.

Among our customers are major nationwide insurance carriers, Fortune 500 commercial employers, Department of Defense, Civilian government agencies, and state National Guards. As a veteran-owned business, we are proud to deliver highly specialized clinical solutions to all branches of our military.

Despite growth, our corporate culture remains entrepreneurial and collaborative, both internally and externally. We treat customers as partners in finding the right solutions for their unique business requirements, and we’re always willing to take risks on new services and customized delivery strategies for each of our clients.

Similar to other small businesses, LifeHealth has weathered the ups and downs of the business cycle and the recent challenges of COVID-19. But our dream of a consumer friendly, preventive healthcare business has been realized far beyond our original expectations.

LifeHealth will continue to grow, to uncover new opportunities, and to expand its services. But on a more personal note, we know that LifeHealth has contributed to the reality of preventive health care for many more Americans. And we take considerable pride in that.
