As of now, there are no urgent care facilities located in the Foothills of Jeffco, or Park County. The nearest are in Lakewood, Golden (and Frisco for ParkCo), as are Emergency Rooms. If you need critical care, calling 911 and having an ambulance come to you is your main option.
EVERGREEN, Colo. -- An Evergreen landscaper gets swarmed by bees and stung dozens of times, but when he was rushed to medical help, he said, he was turned away by not just one, but two healthcare providers.
While doing his job Tuesday, Dan Zuchowski uncovered a hidden danger in more ways than one.
First, it was the bees.
"I was over there raking and apparently, I hit a couple of beehives," said Zuchowski. "I got stung approximately 31 times. My hands, both of my ears, top of my head, my back, top of my legs. It was painful."
Then, it was the scramble to find Urgent Care.
