I'm a Nurse and have been in medicine in some sort or another for almost half my life.

Wanting to find out what the local hospitals are like, are they on the cutting edge of med tech, is it poss to grow proff there?

Are the Phys Therapy clinics big in that area also, what about Pain Medicine?

Look forward to talking w/ those who can give me some much needed info.

I haven't worked in a Denver area hospital for a long time, but I am an RN and I know the answers to a few of your questions.

The University of Colorado Hospital and its affiliates, e.g. Children's, are cutting edge. There are a number of other teaching hospitals here as well.

My daughter just graduated from PT school in May and got a job in Colorado Springs. A lot of her friends in the metro area are working several part time jobs to make a full time income. It may be different for experienced PTs. There are a couple of rehab hospitals here, Craig in Englewood and Spalding in Aurora.

As I said, it's been a long time since I worked in a hosp (my "career" was in public health and now I'm working in a dr's office), so hopefully some others will chime in. One thing we will all tell you is there is no real "nursing shortage" here, and it may be harder to get a job than other places you have lived.
