Denver Health Urgent Care

Denver Health has multiple urgent cares throughout Denver that provide urgent care services for those in need. Our urgent cares treat non-emergent illnesses and injuries that require medical attention, usually after hours or at night, when your regular doctor may not be available. Urgent cares treat things like severe colds, flu, fevers, fractions or sprains, minor cuts, allergies and more.

If you think you have a severe, more life-threatening issue, please call 911 or go to the emergency room.

Urgent Care Hours and Locations

When to 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. Urgent care 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.
