In a day when freestanding emergency departments pop up frequently, Swedish Southwest ER remains a South Jeffco community staple.

The emergency room, which opened 13 years ago, recently was renovated to update the facility and provide more room for patients.

Among other things, the $2 million project included new flooring, painting and signage as well as a new triage room. Work began in September 2017 and wrapped up two weeks ago.

The ER, at 6196 S. Ammons Way in Littleton, is an area filled with other doctor’s offices and businesses, so director Laura-Anne Cleveland said the signage is a big deal. Swedish also paid for updated signage for the other businesses in the office park to make it easier for patrons to locate they business they’re looking for.

Swedish Southwest has 18 patient rooms with four rapid medical exam areas, allowing it to serve at least 22 patients at a time. Additionally, there are two behavioral health rooms to ensure patient safety, and the health care facility has its own lab with a full staff.

“It’s pretty neat to be able to offer things that others don’t at a high level,” Cleveland said.
