Adult Urgent Care Center
The Adult Urgent Care Center at Denver Health provides urgent care services for those who are in need of care after business hours or who cannot be seen by their primary care physician.
The Adult Urgent Care Center 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.
What is the difference between urgent care and emergency care?
- Urgent care treats illnesses and injuries that require medical attention, usually after hours or at night, when your regular doctor may not be available.
- Emergency care treats more life-threatening injuries such as head injuries, serious broken bones, and injuries and illnesses that usually need treatment right away.
A few of the common non-emergent illnesses and injuries we treat include:
- Minor injuries
- Severe colds, flu and fevers
- Coughs and asthma
- Sore throats, ear aches and other respiratory problems
- Minor cuts and abrasions
- Back, joint or muscle pain
- Abdominal pain
- Skin rashes and other allergic reactions
- Gynecologic problems
