Emergency and Urgent Care Center Opens in Frederick

(ENGLEWOOD, COLO.) Centura Health announced today it is making high quality, affordable health care easier than ever to access with the opening of an emergency and urgent care center in the Indian Peaks Medical Center building, just east of I-25 on Highway 52 in Frederick.

This is the third Centura Health emergency and urgent care location, with four more planned for 2016. This innovative model is staffed by board-certified emergency physicians and emergency-trained nurses to care for patients 24/7. Consumers have a single point of access to care for cold and flu symptoms, broken bones, chest pain, head injuries, abdominal pain, and other emergency conditions in a single location with fees based on the type of care required.

This new concept means patients dont have to choose between getting the highest level of care or convenient, after-hours care. Its also part of the larger Centura Health vision for bringing health and wellness to the people of Frederick, Dacono and Firestone, and all along the northern Front Range, said Peter Powers, vice president, operations, Longmont United Hospital.

Developed with partner The Larkin Group, the Frederick location began seeing patients this week. A ribbon cutting is planned for Wednesday, June 8, at 8:00 am.
