“Catalyst HTI has launched an exciting effort to reimagine health and to revolutionize healthcare, and we’re delighted to be a part of it,” said Jim Polsfut, CEO of NASH.  

“We’re members of Catalyst HTI because we share its vision and are committed to being part of the solution.”

As an international center of excellence in the delivery of healthcare, NASH serves U.S. self-ensured employers that seek reductions in healthcare expense as a result of a center of excellence’s ability to produce higher and more consistent healthcare quality outcomes (i.e, from fewer misdiagnosed procedures, readmissions, wound infections, etc.).

In Cancun, within a Joint Commission International accredited Mexican private general hospital, NASH opened its first specialty hospital program using U.S. clinical protocols, U.S. quality benchmarks and performance metrics, U.S. medical supplies and equipment, U.S. surgeons on rotation from U.S. cities near where NASH’s patients work and live, and U.S. malpractice insurance coverage, along with a U.S. hotel directly attached to the hospital. 

“When I first conceived of what Catalyst could be, I imagined people with bold ideas coming together across organizations to find new solutions to some of our biggest healthcare challenges,” said Mike Biselli, Catalyst president. 

“The folks at NASH are actively taking part in exactly those kinds of breakthrough initiatives and are a welcome addition to our community. Our ecosystem is very fortunate to have NASH’s leadership on campus!”

Located in Denver’s River North District (RiNo), Catalyst HTI is a 180,000 square-foot industry integrator designed to bring health-tech startups and established health care entities together under one roof.

The building covers an entire block, located on the west side of Brighton Boulevard between 35th and 36th Streets. Catalyst HTI’s goal is to bring together private enterprise (startups to Fortune 100), government, academic and non-profit organizations with healthcare providers and payers to accelerate innovation and drive real, lasting change.
