Aurora, Colorado – Colorado’s newest hospital, UCHealth Broomfield Hospital, is now open and providing advanced, community-focused care with highly skilled and experienced physicians and nurses.

The Joint Commission has certified the new hospital, a step that also allows all 13 freestanding UCHealth Emergency Room locations in metro Denver to now accept Medicare, Medicaid and Tricare patients.

Located at 11820 Destination Drive, near Highway 36 and Wadsworth Boulevard, UCHealth Broomfield Hospital provides the highest quality care in a smaller, more personal and convenient environment. Each patient will receive the expert care they need, delivered with exceptional service.

“UCHealth Broomfield Hospital was designed to provide personalized service and care similar to a nice hotel,” said President and CEO Derek Rushing. “Our warm, community atmosphere, combined with the highest quality and most advanced medical care, will help ensure our patients receive the very best medical outcomes and are able to go home as soon as possible.”

The hospital is opening with:

  • 18 spacious, private, inpatient rooms
  • Three advanced operating suites
  • Four-bed intensive care unit
  • High-quality laboratory services
  • 24/7 emergency department
  • Comprehensive outpatient surgical center
  • Advanced imaging technology

“UCHealth is nationally recognized for providing the highest quality care along with advanced treatments including clinical trials through our partnership with the University of Colorado School of Medicine,” said Dr. Richard Zane, UCHealth’s Executive Director of Emergency Services and Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the CU School of Medicine. “UCHealth Broomfield Hospital will continue that tradition of excellence in this comfortable and more convenient location.”

“Broomfield is a growing, family-friendly community that offers an excellent quality of life for our residents,” said Broomfield Mayor Randy Ahrens. “This new hospital, an important milestone for our city and county, ensures that our residents can receive excellent medical care without driving a longer distance.”

Amenities like free Wi-Fi, a play area for children, a coffee station and comfortable waiting areas will help patients and visitors to the hospital feel welcome. UCHealth Broomfield Hospital is helping to address Colorado’s need for improved access to emergency medical care with this new hospital as well as with freestanding UCHealth Emergency Rooms located in the Denver area.

The American College of Emergency Physicians gave the state of Colorado a D+ grade for access to emergency care in 2014 on their Emergency Medicine Report Card. This report shows the need for increased access to emergency medicine, not just in Colorado, but also across the nation.
UCHealth Broomfield Hospital is operated through a partnership with Adeptus Health, a patient-centered health care organization dedicated to expanding access to the highest quality emergency medical care.
