Children's Hospital Colorado

Welcome to Children's Hospital Colorado

Why choose Children's Hospital Colorado?

At Children's Hospital Colorado, we see more, treat more and heal more kids than any hospital in our seven-state region. We're experienced and forward-thinking when it comes to the latest methods for diagnosis and treatment. This translates into less invasive treatment, less time, and less stress on you and your children.

Our specially trained pediatric experts recognize that families are our partners, which is why we deliver family-centered care. By making the hospital very family-friendly, we make it easier for parents and siblings to be involved in the day-to-day medical, emotional and social needs of their child.

Our hospital on Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora was designed and built to enhance our care for kids. Using data from an innovative type of study called evidence-based design, everything about our hospital was built to help us speed kids to recovery. From 100% private patient rooms to healing color therapy and views of nature, every detail of Children's Colorado was built to help kids get better faster and reduce stress on the whole family.

Our mission

When it was founded in 1908 in Denver, Children's Colorado set out to be a leader in providing the best healthcare outcomes for children. That calling has consistently made us one of the top children's hospitals in the nation and a place parents across the Rocky Mountain region have come to trust.

Our modern-day mission is to improve the health of children through the provision of high-quality coordinated programs of patient care, education, research and advocacy.

In addition to providing the best possible care for kids who need it, we also work hard to keep kids out of the hospital. Through medical research and advocacy efforts, we are working towards a world where kids are safer and healthier and will one day have less need for a hospital.

Patient care

As a private, nonprofit pediatric healthcare network, Children's Colorado is 100% dedicated to caring for kids at all ages and stages of growth. We have more than 3,000 pediatric specialists and more than 5,000 full-time employees helping to carry out our mission.

We provide comprehensive pediatric care at our hospital on Anschutz Medical Campus and at several locations throughout the region.

No matter which location you visit, you'll receive the best possible care for your kids with our specially trained staff and facilities designed just for kids. Unlike other hospitals and urgent care locations, we partner with your child's pediatrician or your family doctor to make sure you receive integrated care.

Children's Colorado is the only dedicated Level 1 trauma center in our seven-state region, handling the most challenging emergencies. We offer emergency and urgent care at multiple locations as well as numerous specialty care centers and clinics.

In addition to these locations, we bring our expertise to doctors and families throughout the Rocky Mountain region with more than 400 outreach clinics every year.

Ongoing doctor education

Children's Colorado is committed to providing continuing educational opportunities that will enhance and advance the pediatric knowledge and clinical skills of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals across the region. These educational topics range from primary care to critical care and are available in-person and online. This is our way of ensuring kids across the region have access to up-to-date techniques and treatment for kids.

Cutting-edge pediatric research

We are at the forefront of research in childhood disease with several nationally and internationally recognized medical and surgical programs. Together, with our partners, we are responsible for virtually all of the pediatric research published in the Rocky Mountain region for at least a decade. We are always striving to find new and better ways to cure kids so you can be sure you are receiving the best care for your child at our facilities.

Children's health policy advocacy

Our clinical work may be the most visible part of our mission, but advocacy is just as important. Advocacy is how we influence decisions relating to children's health policy issues, such as injury prevention and access to quality care.

Children's Colorado's advocacy efforts expand out into communities across Colorado and are aimed at making sure that kids' concerns are always heard when public policies are made.

From providing immunizations and car seat checks, our goal is to help keep kids healthy and out of the hospital. We envision a world where no child needs a hospital. Until we make that happen, we're here for your kids.
