Aurora Medicare Colorado Insurance AgentsIn the 1880s it was known as the town of Fletcher, because it was named after Denver businessman Donald Fletcher who saw it as a real estate opportunity. However, after the Silver Crash of 1893, Fletcher left town and it was renamed Aurora in 1907, after one of the subdivisions in town. Aurora has slowly grown to become one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States during the late 1970s and early 1980s. A large military presence has existed in Aurora since the early 20th century. Army General Hospital # 21 (later renamed Fitzsimons Army Hospital) , Lowry Air Force Base, Buckley Field, (now renamed Naval Air Station), and Buckley Air Force Base all call Aurora home.
Fitzsimons Army Medical Center was decommissioned in 1999, and now it is part of the Anschutz Medical Campus of the University of Colorado Denver, and the Fitzsimons Life Science District. The Anschutz Medical Campus also includes the University of Colorado Hospital, which moved to Aurora from Denver in 2007, and the Children’s Hospital. The city’s population was 325,078 in the 2010 Census, which makes it the third most populous city in the state of Colorado and the 56th most populous city in the United States.
