What to Do When You Need 24-Hour Urgent Care in Aurora, CO
Many Denver residents are surprised to learn that they can’t find 24-hour urgent care in Aurora, CO. If you have an urgent medical problem during overnight hours, your options may be limited to going to the emergency department or riding the problem out until morning. If you have a life-threatening emergency, you should go to the ER no matter time of day it is.
What to Do When You’re Not Sure
It’s not always easy to tell the difference between discomfort and danger. Rocky Mountain Urgent Care recommends you consult our Emergency Room vs. Urgent Care guide for knowing when to go to the ER and when to go to Urgent Care. (You can find a list of ER vs. UC symptoms beneath our directory of local providers and hours.)
Still not sure? We understand that a list of symptoms may not be enough information to make a decision in every case. For more ambiguous cases, you can call one of Denver’s 24-hour nursing hotlines.
- Denver Health NurseLine: 303-739-1211 (For Denver Health patients and the people of Denver)
- Health First Colorado Nurse Advice Line: 800-283-3221 (For Health First Colorado members only)
These health professionals can’t make a clinical diagnosis over the phone, but they can help you make that all-important decision: Should you go to the ER, or should you attempt to get through the night and visit an urgent care center in the morning? They may also be able to provide advice on specific things to watch out for that would signal it’s time to go to the ER.

Working Toward 24-Hour Urgent Care in Aurora
Due to the economics of the urgent care industry, it can be extremely difficult to maintain viable 24-hour urgent care in Aurora—or pretty much anywhere in the state. At the same time, Rocky Mountain Urgent Care recognizes that Denver patients and families face these types of decisions every single day, and that urgent health problems can happen at any hour of the day.
We also recognize that many individuals and families have little extra room in their schedule to spend all day in an ER waiting room. Most of the time, we see our patients within 30 minutes and complete the appointment within an hour. In addition to our walk-in clinic, Rocky Mountain Urgent Care may have same-day appointments for family medicine and other health services. Part of our commitment to increasing access to healthcare services is working toward expanded hours without inflating the cost of our health services.
Whether you need urgent medical help, family medicine, or other health services, Rocky Mountain Urgent Care is proud to serve the Aurora, CO community. Our team of health professionals consistently provides skilled, compassionate, and timely medical care.
