Urgent care in Colorado — Denver/Boulder/Northern/Mountain areas

What is urgent care?

An urgent care need is one that requires prompt medical attention, usually within 24 or 48 hours, but is not an emergency medical condition. This can include:

  • Minor injuries
  • Backaches
  • Sore throats
  • Coughs
  • Upper respiratory symptoms
  • Frequent urination or a burning sensation when urinating 

There are urgent care needs that are not emergencies. Knowing the difference can save you and your family time and money.

Do not attempt to access emergency care through this website.

If you think you or your family member has a medical or mental health emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.
