I had no idea Sky Ridge was that small compared to the other hospitals.

It's a community hospital, it does what it is supposed to do, serve the community, just as Avista does in Louisville. Avista has 114 beds, and my husband had a great experience (well, as great as it can be when you have cancer) at Avista this past fall.

If you're looking for even smaller, Parker Adventist, right at E-470 and Parker, only has 134 beds.

There are 3 major private hospital networks in town, if that's where you're looking to work - Centura, Health One, and Exempla. Then there's also Denver Health and Hospital Authority which is an academic safety net public hospital. There is also the University of Colorado system, which has been buying up and partnering with other hospitals outside of Denver all up and down the front range (including in the Springs, Fort Collins/Loveland), but their big main hospital is the location in Aurora on the Anschutz campus.

There are a couple level I trauma centers in Denver if that's your preference (Denver Health, Swedish, and St. Anthony's Central in Lakewood).

For pediatrics, there's Children's Hospital, the major pediatric academic hospital for the entire front range, which is on the Anschutz campus and Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, a private entity, which has beds in several hospitals.
