Nathan Montoya, a freelance photographer and former EMT, donated two of his photos to the EMS Lounge, which opened earlier this year. He says that his father, a former Denver Health paramedic, is a big part of why he chose his career path and what inspired him to capture photography of our ambulances saving lives on the streets of Denver. His pride for our paramedics is seen in the iconic images he captures through his lens and what he calls the “heartbeat” of the city. Now adorned with some impressive artwork, the dedicated space for pre-hospital first responders and EMS personnel from across the metro area is a place to refuel and rest between emergency runs. We share Nathan’s respect for our first responders and could not be more thankful for his gift to the lounge which we are certain will inspire generations to come!

Denver City Council - Weekly Legislative Meeting


This year is the 50th anniversary of the first National EMS Week! As we celebrate our amazing EMS community this week, we also honor those who came before, especially those who challenged the status quo and raised the bar for all of us. EMS has come a long way, and we look forward to building on their efforts, continuing the commitment to forge a future for the next generation of EMS professionals to serve their communities. 🚑 🚑🚨


Congratulations to Denver Health paramedic Jason Morten, who was recognized last Friday night at Coors Field before the start of the Colorado Rockies game! Morten, who has been with the Denver Health Paramedics since December 2021, was one of about 10 people from various Denver-area agencies honored as May’s employees of the month by the Rockies. Our paramedics provide medical service at all Rockies games, including both first-aid rooms, bikes roaming the stadium and a paramedic seated behind home plate in case of an on-field emergency. More employees of the Paramedic Division are expected to be recognized each month through the rest of the baseball season. We’d call that a home run for all our dedicated EMS professionals keeping us safe on and off the field! ⚾️🚑🫶

Denver paramedics can navigate without a GPS. Here’s how they do it — and why you should try, too 05/15/2024

“Last week, Denverite joined Denver Health Paramedic Boyer’s class to find out what everyday people could learn from how paramedics navigate the city. Most people keep mental maps of their community — but what happens when you pair that with a deep understanding of the underlying system?

The answer involves a new understanding of Denver’s street signs, its geography and the city’s history. Plus: the ability to get nearly anywhere without using a GPS.” Denverite Denver Health

Happy Nurses Week to all of you amazing nurses out there!!

This National Nurses Week we’re illuminating the spirit of nursing excellence and honoring Denver Health’s amazing nurses by lighting up the hospital. The American Nurses Association calls it “Nurses Light Up The Sky” and we could not agree more as our nurses shine bright showing compassion and bringing dedication and expertise to the patients they help heal. We are grateful for their unwavering commitment to Denver Health’s mission of caring for all.

Pavilion A on the hospital’s main campus will be lit up each night this week. Snap a photo with the building and post it using the hashtag to show your support of nurses!

Each year, an estimated 240 million calls are made to 911 across the United States. In an emergency, callers depend on public safety telecommunicators for help in the moments before first responders and EMS can arrive. These dedicated individuals are more than anonymous voices on the other end of the line; they are trained professionals who work hard to provide immediate life-saving instructions, gather critical information, and quickly dispatch needed resources.

The second week of April is a week designated to celebrating these hard-working individuals. They deserve our heartfelt appreciation, and we are grateful to work alongside these first, first responders. Please take a moment during this special time to thank your Public Safety Telecommunicators.

Yesterday we had the privilege of hosting two local Girl Scout troops, Junior Troop 67331 and Daisy Troop 67335, as the recipient of their Hometown Hero Girl Scout Cookie donation. The troops scheduled a cookie drop-off, handing out cookies to crews coming in and off shift, participated in activities with hospital leaders and staff, and completed safety and first aid training with the Paramedics.

After completing this age-appropriate safety and first aid training, we are proud to share that the Daisy Troop earned their Safety Award pin and the Junior Troop earned their First Aid badge. Great work troops! Thank you for selecting us for your Hometown Hero cookie donation!
