Denver Health opening ER for children
Denver Business Journal
Denver Health on Saturday will mark the grand opening of its new emergency room for children.
The new ER at Denver Health, 777 Bannock St., has a staff of emergency medicine physicians who specialize in pediatric medical trauma care and urgent care, and nurses with special training in pediatrics.
Features include all private rooms and a separate ambulance entrance.
Denver Health is opening the new facility amid a more heated competitive environment in the pediatric care sector.
Last year, The Children’s Hospital moved its main building from Denver to Aurora and opened a satellite clinic in Denver’s Saint Joseph Hospital.
The Children’s Hospital also will open an urgent care clinic in Broomfield next month. With the opening, Children’s will have 13 satellite operations in the Denver area.
HealthONE’s Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center currently runs an 84-bed pediatric unit and plans to open a freestanding pediatric hospital by the first quarter of 2010.
Since Children's Hospital moved from Denver, Denver Health's pediatric care has increased by 20 percent, according to a Denver Health spokesperson.
