There aren't any hospitals in Denver that have that many deliveries. I would say the hospitals with the highest census probably have around 6000 deliveries a year. The University does around 5000. I would guess Denver Health does more (I just googled, and the answer I got was 3500, but I don't know what year that was).
26,000 babies a year? In Iowa? Wow. Is that like the only L&D unit in the entire tri-state area?
There are lots of hospitals with Level II NICUs, and a few with Level III. I know that Avista in Louisville (far northern suburbs, closer to Boulder than Denver) has LDRP suites, I don't know about any other hospitals. I personally don't care for LDRP setups, I prefer LDRs, and having postpartum as a separate room, but that's just me, I'm weird that way.
As far as ratio goes, for most hospitals a 1:1 ratio in labor is a dream, IME, except during second stage, unless you're overstaffed. I don't think AWHONN guidelines specify 1:1 ratio except during second stage or in certain situations anyway (MgSO4 administration), do they?
