Here, it's safe. Normal life looks a lot different these days, especially in healthcare. But there is one thing that hasn’t changed at Children’s Colorado: Your child’s health and safety are our highest priority. Kids need great pediatric care as much now as ever, and it’s for that reason that we’re reactivating services we temporarily suspended due to the pandemic. We are here to deliver safe, thoughtful, high-quality care for kids who need it. Learn what to expect – and all the ways we’re keeping patients safe.
If you're concerned that you or your child may have been exposed to COVID-19, please do NOT visit an emergency or urgent care location. Instead, call your doctor or our free ParentSmart Healthline at 720-777-0123 for guidance.
In life-threatening emergencies, find the emergency room location nearest you. For non-life-threatening medical needs when your pediatrician is unavailable, visit one of our urgent care locations.

Children's Hospital Colorado today celebrated the groundbreaking of our future South Campus in Highlands Ranch, Colo. Slated to open at the end of 2013, the South Campus will offer a wide range of expert pediatric care including urgent, outpatient specialty, inpatient and surgery care along with state-of-the-art imaging and diagnostic services.
Children's Colorado expects to host nearly 80,000 patient visits at the South Campus during its first year. The approximately 175,000-square-foot facility will be located on 22 acres of land at the corner of Plaza Drive and Lucent Blvd., south of C-470.
"The southern communities along the Front Range have continued to grow at a rapid rate, particularly attracting families with children," said Jim Shmerling, president and CEO of Children's Colorado. "With this growth has come an increased demand for convenient access to expert pediatric care. With our new South Campus, as well as our soon-to-open specialty care clinic in Colorado Springs, Children's Colorado will be better positioned to meet the needs of families in these communities."
24/7 Urgent Care - 22 exam rooms for lower acuity patients
Sports Medicine Center with gym and physical therapy
Surgery Center - 4 operating rooms
Laboratory Services - lab draws and specimen processing to support patients from Urgent Care, Inpatient, Infusion, Clinics and Operating Rooms, as well as walk-in patients
Imaging Services - General Radiology, MRI, Ultrasound, Fluoroscopy and CT
Diagnostic Services - Audiology, ECHO, PFT, EKG and EEG
In addition, the facility will feature a family hospitality area, play areas for patients and siblings, a cafeteria/coffee shop and conference rooms. Children's Colorado is partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities, Starlight Foundation and Denver Botanic Gardens on landscape design and a healing garden.
