As we kick off a new year, we're thankful for all we've been able to accomplish in 2013. Here are the biggest highlights of 2013 at Children's Hospital Colorado:
Children’s Colorado officially opened our 180,000-square-foot facility in Highlands Ranch on Dec. 19 to better serve the needs of families in the South Denver Metro Area. The new location includes a 24/7 Urgent Care and is projected to host 80,000 patient visits in 2014.
Under the direction of Dr. Tim Crombleholme, the Colorado Fetal Care Center opened just over a year ago. He and his team performed more than 90 fetal procedures in 2013, giving new hope to parents from all over the country.
From Broomfield to Pueblo, Children’s Colorado’s expansion has allowed us to provide high-quality care to even more children close to home. In fact, outpatient and emergency department visits increased 10% in 2013 and surgeries increased 6%.
Based on employee feedback, The Denver Post named Children’s Colorado a top 10 large employer and a Top Workplace for 2013.
