ESPECIALLY if you're somewhat younger, heed my advice or you will regret it. Central Denver >>>>>>>>>>>> anything Saudi Aurora. The commute from downtown to that part of aurora isn't bad at all. You can drive or there is a bus line that runs on 17th.
Anschutz isn't anywhere near DU or Cherry Creek... It's way north east from both of those places. Cherry Creek mall also sucks fwiw
Also look at Park Hill and/or Hale Mayfair (south of Colfax from Park Hill) as they would only be a 10 minute commute to the hospital 15 minutes from Down Town. I lived in that area for 4 years and loved it, but you don't get gouged price wise like Cheeseman, City Park, etc...
