In a medical emergency, the sooner you can get help, the better. Rose Medical Center has two emergency rooms: one conveniently located in central Denver at 9th and Cherry and Rose Stapleton ER just north of Interstate-70 in Stapleton. Both are renowned for highly skilled doctors and nurses and efficient, quality care. We hope you find comfort in knowing the Rose ER is ready to care for you and your family 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
When emergencies strike, trust Rose Medical Center.
Short ER wait times
We treat all patients with the courtesy and respect they deserve by working hard to keep ER wait times as minimal as possible. Your health matters to us, and our ER staff will prioritize care based on the severity of illness or injury. As part of our commitment to the Denver community, we publicize the wait times – in real time—for both of our emergency rooms at the top of every page of our website so you can make an informed decision about your family’s care.
Please remember - if you have an illness or injury that you believe is life-threatening, call 911. Do not try to drive to the closest emergency room.
