Virta Health Celebrates Grand Opening of New Headquarters in Downtown Denver
DENVER – Oct. 11, Virta Health, the leading company dedicated to helping individuals reverse type 2 diabetes, prediabetes and obesity, announced the opening of its new headquarters in Downtown Denver, one year after announcing its expansion into the city at the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation’s (EDC) Site Selection Conference. The occasion was marked by a special event attended by Virta Health's CEO, Sami Inkinen, and Denver Mayor Mike Johnston.
"Colorado and Denver are quickly establishing themselves as a hub for innovation and an ideal place to scale high-growth and high-tech companies like Virta,” said Sami Inkinen, CEO and co-founder of Virta Health. “And, not only is the talent incredible across multiple disciplines, there is a genuine care for humanity among the region’s people, which aligns perfectly with our mission-driven approach."
Virta Health's commitment to transforming lives through innovative healthcare solutions has garnered widespread recognition. The company's groundbreaking outcomes, including remarkable blood sugar improvement and weight loss, sets them apart in the industry. Notably, Virta Health achieves these exceptional results while significantly reducing or even eliminating the need for ongoing medication use.
While Colorado is known for its healthy residents, nearly 2 million Coloradans have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, placing an economic burden of $3.6 billion on Coloradans and health care systems. Through their industry-leading health and economic resources and outcomes, Virta Health aims to build healthy communities while providing great jobs to local talent.
The impact of Virta Health's approach extends beyond individual health improvements. For individuals with diabetes, Virta Health delivers substantial real-world savings of $6,000 per person per year, resulting from reduced medical and prescription expenses. These impressive outcomes have been consistently validated through sustained, peer-reviewed results, and have earned the trust of some of the largest organizations in the United States.
The grand opening of Virta Health's new headquarters in Downtown Denver signifies a significant milestone in the company's journey. The event showcased Virta Health’s dedication and vision to become an integral part of the community and have a positive impact on both Colorado’s and our nation’s health care industry. The event emphasized the importance of Virta Health's mission to revolutionize healthcare and empower individuals to have a healthier life.
The new headquarters will serve as a hub for innovation, collaboration and the development of cutting-edge solutions to combat type 2 diabetes, prediabetes and obesity.
