Children's Hospital Colorado 7th Floor
The Rick Wilson Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders occupies the entire 7th floor. Look for the "Brown Bear" when getting off of the elevator. The Center includes 24 inpatient beds for hematology, oncology and bone marrow transplant patients, an adjacent outpatient clinic and a large infusion center. The bone marrow transplant section of the unit has separate family amenities such as a patient playroom, a patient exercise area, a family lounge and a kitchen.
Helping Kids Heal
Recent studies show that children who receive cancer treatment in a pediatric setting have better outcomes. From our doctors to our facility, read more about why Children's Hospital Colorado Children’s CCBD is a top choice for kids or teens in need of cancer treatment and care.
Each floor of our inpatient tower is specially designed to help kids heal more quickly. Sound absorbing rubber floors and ceiling tiles minimize noise, as does our paging system that uses text messages or phones instead of overhead announcements to contact staff. This helps patients get the rest they need to heal.
Our natural, full-spectrum lighting is bright enough for providers to care for patients, yet dim enough to encourage sleep.
Research shows natural light benefits the healing process and a patient's outlook, so huge windows, "light wells" and a six-story atrium let natural light shine throughout the inpatient areas.
