Living in Denver, Colorado
A rapidly growing metropolis located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, Denver offers all the amenities of urban living surrounded by unparalleled natural beauty. Outdoor lovers need to look no further than their own backyard for some of the country's best hiking, biking, climbing and skiing. However, those with more of an interest in the arts will find a multitude of museums, performing arts centers, music venues and a burgeoning culinary scene.
Denver is one of two cities in the United States with 8 professional sports teams. Ranging from baseball, football, basketball and hockey to soccer and lacrosse, these teams call such iconic stadiums as Sport's Authority Field, Pepsi Center, Dick's Sporting Goods Park and Coors Field home.
While Denver proper is composed of an array of diverse neighborhoods, many providers in our group also choose to live in surrounding areas in the foothills and nearby cities such as Golden and Boulder. The Central location of Denver Health makes this a feasible and convenient option.
The city's location at the base of the Rockies and not in them, yields overall mild temperatures with average high temperatures of 45 degrees F and 86 degrees in winter and august respectively. The arid climate translates into low levels of precipitation with only 8-15 inches annually. The city also boasts 300 days of sunshine per year which is more than Miami or San Diego. This makes outdoor activity in one of the city's 200 parks a year round possibility.
