Denver Health has multiple urgent care centers throughout Denver that provide essential services for those in need. We treat non-emergent illnesses and injuries such as severe colds, flu, fevers, fractions or sprains, minor cuts and allergies that require medical attention when your regular doctor may not usually be available.
Services are also provided for kids at the Denver Health Downtown Urgent Care and at our Pediatric Emergency Department and Urgent Care Center, which has a separate entrance and location for specifically treating children.
If you think you are experiencing a health emergency or have a severe, more life-threatening issue, please call 911 or go to the emergency room.
When should I go to urgent care?
In addition to urgent medical issues, when the illness or injury is something you would address with your primary care doctor but you cannot get an immediate appointment or it’s after hours, urgent care is your best option. It is designed to be an alternative to the Emergency Department when your regular provider is not available. We suggest that you contact your provider or the NurseLine at 303-739-1211 before seeking care.
