First Choice Emergency Room is now part of UCHealth, offering high quality emergency care when you need it.

UCHealth ERs are a new concept in emergency care: fully equipped emergency rooms located in your neighborhood, close to your home. Our doctors and nurses are certified in emergency medicine, and our ERs feature advanced diagnostic equipment, including CT Scanners, Digital X-Ray and Ultrasound, plus on-site testing labs to quickly diagnose medical issues.

That means you get the same quality of care available in a hospital, but with shorter wait times.

Our ER is located at 58th St and Ralston Rd. in Arvada, Colorado.
