maps & directions

Unlike an urgent care center, Saddle Rock ER is staffed 24/7 by board-certified emergency medicine physicians and specially trained nurses, allowing for timely treatment of acute illnesses or injuries, without a trip to the hospital.

Saddle Rock ER sits on the southwest corner of South Gartrell Road and East Dry Creek Road, near E-470. The facility accepts walk-in patients and those arriving by ambulance. If hospital admission is necessary, Saddle Rock ER patients can receive rapid ground or air transport to The Medical Center of Aurora.

Complete with 10 patient beds and a designated trauma room, the facility offers on-site services typically found only in a hospital setting, including:

  • Digital radiology
  • CT scanning
  • Full service laboratory
  • Blood bank, exclusively for Saddle Rock ER use
  • Full spectrum of emergency diagnostic services
  • AirLife helipad for rapid transport of the most critical patients to ICU, Cath lab or Trauma Center

*Please Note: Emergency care is NOT offered at our sister medical plaza, The Medical Center of Aurora-North.
