Safety First at Children's Hospital Colorado
While our passion is taking care of kids' health needs, we'd like nothing more than for families to never have to use our services. That is why Children's Hospital Colorado dedicates so many resources and partners with so many organizations to help prevent injuries in children. There are things you and your family can do to stay safe, ways to get involved in the community to promote safe-kid initiatives, and many educational resources for families and professionals.
