What You Need to Know

As of 6:30 a.m. today, Denver Health had 10 inpatient COVID-19 cases (-1 from yesterday).

For more information, visit the Denver Public Health COVID-19 Data Summary (use Edge or Chrome). The website is updated daily and contains data on cases, hospitalization, deaths, testing and symptoms.

NEW: Denver Health Vaccination Numbers

Staff vaccination numbers were updated at 4 p.m. today.

  • 6,817 employees (+ affiliated staff/contractors) and residents/students have received their first dose of vaccine.

  • 6,503 employees (+ affiliated staff/contractors) and residents/students have received their second dose of vaccine.

In total, Denver Health has administered 76,062 doses of COVID-19 vaccine to staff, patients and members of the public who are eligible according to State guidelines.

NEW: PPE Tracking Numbers

All levels, across the 63 items we track daily, for COVID Core PPE continue to hold steady in terms of consumption. That, in conjunction with steady, albeit lower-than-preferred supply from our vendor, equates to predictable/manageable inventories. Logistics will continue to pursue high-value, one time buys of stock items as the opportunities present themselves.

REMINDER: COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics Officially Move to Pavilion M

Denver Health has a new location for our COVID-19 vaccination clinics. Starting today, we will use Pavilion M as our primary vaccination clinic. We are no longer holding vaccination clinics in the Physical and Occupational Therapy section on the 6th floor of the Outpatient Medical Center (OMC). Those departments are officially moving into their new space at the OMC next week and will begin seeing patients there. The last vaccination clinic in Pavilion C is being held today.

We believe the space on the second floor in Pavilion M is ideal because it’s empty now that the Gastroenterology department has moved to the OMC. There should be no interruptions in this location, and we should be able to stage vaccination clinics there for the foreseeable future. The typical hours of operation will be 8AM-4PM Wednesday-Saturday, (depending on vaccine availability).

REMINDER: Additional Dates Available for RISE Group Support for Grief & Loss

RISE Group Support for Grief & Loss

One year ago, we all had to unexpectedly and dramatically alter the way we live. Across this year of pain and disruption, many of us have been navigating various forms of loss, including, but not limited to, the death of patients, colleagues and loved ones; the loss of “normalcy” of the rhythm of our lives; the loss of dreams and expectations; and the loss of connection to family and friends with relationships defined by distance. RISE Group Support can provide a dedicated and emotionally safe space to discuss the ways in which we are personally impacted. All Denver Health personnel (clinical and nonclinical, patient-facing and non-patient facing, trainees and employees, contractors and volunteers) are welcome and group content is confidential. Please register in advance. Links are provided below. Alternatively, you may email dhrise@dhha.org with a request to be registered.
