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.
5280 Magazine Names Over 100 Children's Colorado Physicians "Top Docs"
5280 | July 22, 2014
5280 magazine has released its 2014 list of Denver's Top Docs. We're proud to say that out of the 333 mentioned, 113 Children's Hospital Colorado physicians made the list.
In compiling the Top Docs list, the magazine turned to Denver physicians for their opinion. For the past 20 years, 5280 has surveyed doctors and asked them, specialty by specialty, which metro-area physicians they would trust to treat themselves and their families.
The ballot is posted at 5280.com from mid-January to mid-March each year. Every metro-area doctor with a valid Colorado medical license can fill it out. Once the doctor hits “save,” the votes are entered into 5280's database and automatically tallied.
Congratulations to these doctors who have devoted their lives to pediatric medicine!
