UCHealth Emergency Room Locations Expanding in Denver metro area


UCHealth will open its new Aurora-Central emergency facility in partnership with Adeptus Health in late September.

"Providing the highest quality emergency care, close to home for our patients, is one of UCHealth's priorities," says Dr. Richard Zane, executive director of emergency services at UCHealth and chair of the department of emergency medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. "These locations allow patients to receive emergency medical care in a more convenient way, while having access to UCHealth’s full healthcare network."

The new UCHealth Emergency Room will be a full-service emergency facility, licensed by the state, and open 24-7. Additionally, the new location will have full access to UCHealth’s network of physicians, specialists and advanced treatment options while ensuring seamless transfer for patients requiring inpatient or specialty care.

Different from urgent care centers, all UCHealth Emergency Room facilities are open 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, and are staffed exclusively with board-certified emergency physicians and emergency trained registered nurses. The facilities are equipped with a full radiology suite, including CT scanner, Digital X-ray, Ultrasound, as well as on-site laboratories certified by the Clinical Laboratory Improvements Amendments (CLIA) and accredited by the Commission on Office Laboratories Accreditation (COLA).

The Aurora-Central facility will be located at 15300 E. Mississippi Ave., Aurora, CO 80017. For more information, visit
