If you are faced with a medical crisis, you’ll find world-class care at Lutheran Medical Center’s Emergency Department, at any time, day or night. We’re also working with our community to prevent accidents that are the leading causes of emergency visits.
In May, more than 300 seniors from the Denver Metro area convened on Lutheran Medical Center’s campus for the second annual Seniors’ Resource Fair, cosponsored by Lutheran and the Seniors’ Resource Center.
In a medical emergency, there are more choices than ever. If you think you are having a life-threatening emergency, the safest thing to do is to call 911. That way, trained professionals can begin treatment before you get to the hospital, and the hospital staff will be ready to take over as soon as you arrive.
