Dr. Jerry Jurkovich

Welcome to Denver Health’s trauma surgery home page. Since 1860, Denver Health and Hospital Authority (formerly Denver General) has been providing medical care to the sick and the injured, and for over 150 years, that tradition and mission have remained unchanged. Our academic affiliation with the University of Colorado’s Department of Surgery has been an important and vital part of our identity.

We invite you to delve into these web pages to explore our faculty, clinical programs, research, and our resources and commitment to being the nation’s premier academic trauma center, and the home of the modern Acute Care Surgery training program and practice paradigm.

Sincerely,
Gregory J. “Jerry” Jurkovich, MD
Rockwell Distinguished Professor of Surgery
Director of Surgery, Denver Health Medical Center
