Children’s Hospital Colorado has been taking care of kids of all ages
for more than 100 years. We see, treat and heal more children than
any hospital in our region. Because our research shapes the future
of pediatrics, we offer extraordinary treatments years before they’re
available anywhere else.
We hope your child never needs a hospital. But should that day come,
having the right information matters. For more, visit childrenscolorado.org.
Here, collaborative care begins with you, because you know your child best. Through
every stage of your journey, you’re an equal partner with our expert physicians, nurses,
specialists, and your pediatrician, all working together on your child’s care. Our team
process means parents aren’t left to coordinate care between departments, or navigate
the healthcare system on their own.
Every child’s condition is unique, and deserves an equally unique care plan. Our network
of knowledgeable physicians and specialists, and our innovative technology give us the
tools to treat each child individually. From the rarest of conditions to everyday situations,
every patient we see deepens our insight into the specialized world of pediatrics.
Why The Right
Kids are not simply small adults.
Still-growing bodies call for unique
pediatric treatments. Ask these questions
when choosing a hospital:

Ours all have 2 to 3 additional

What about nurses, therapists,
anesthesiologists and the
rest of the care team?
Our focus on kids means
everyone involved in your child’s
care has pediatric-specific training

your child, making you the most

conditions is important. General
hospitals rarely see many childhood
illnesses — and may not know how

Equipment designed for an adult
can physically stress or even harm
a child. Devices and treatments
customized especially for kids are
just one way we put children first.
What programs do you have
to ease kids’ fears?
Our expansive kid-centric
environment and procedures are
designed to empower our patients,
helping put them at ease. That’s
why we let kids choose their
medicine flavor, bring our therapy
dogs in for visits, and employ Child
Life Specialists to help kids and
families deal with stress and fear.
