New clinic increases health care options in Central Park

April 5, 2022

Aurora, Colo. (April 4, 2022) – Today, UCHealth celebrates the opening of the Northfield Medical Center in Central Park. Located on the corner of E. 46th Avenue and Yosemite Street, this new location will offer expanded health care access to thousands of Coloradans in the area.

“Central Park is among the fasted growing communities in Denver metro,” said Lori Japp, PA-C and Vice President of Urgent Care & Employer Solutions. “Demand for primary and urgent care has grown in recent years and we are pleased to increase our services in this thriving neighborhood, allowing patients to receive care closer to home.”

Services at UCHealth Northfield Medical Center include primary care, physical therapy, occupational medicine and the only urgent care on the north side of I-270.

“Increasing access for patients throughout Colorado to receive low cost, same day care for their urgent needs without having to go to the emergency department is very important to UCHealth,” said Japp. “Urgent care is a great option for patients who have a pressing medical need and are unable to wait to see their primary care physician.”

Urgent care is a good option for non-life threatening conditions, such as sprains, strains, rashes, lacerations, sore throats or other medical issues that require same day care.

“Urgent care can provide an option for those who have not yet established a relationship with a primary care physician or even for out of town visitors,” said Lindsey Morton, a physician assistant, who will see patients at Northfield Medical Center’s urgent care clinic.

She adds that urgent care is not an alternate for those experiencing life-threatening conditions.

“If the condition is truly an emergency, the patient should seek immediate care at an emergency department.”

UCHealth’s Northfield Medical Center was thoughtfully designed to be a part of the community and contains artwork from local artists.
