At Children's Hospital Colorado, we recognize that teens are a category unto themselves, and they deserve special attention. What might solve problems in an adult is not always right for a teen. It takes a special approach to healthcare, considering all aspects of teen health – physical, emotional, mental, even sexual – to provide the best care possible. Children's Hospital Colorado offers a full range of primary, secondary, and tertiary healthcare to teenagers in the metropolitan area with both physical and emotional problems.
