We are prepared and ready to treat patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, the condition caused by the coronavirus that first appeared in late 2019. Our clinical team has been specially trained on how to identify, isolate and treat patients with this and other contagious illnesses. However, for perspective, our bigger threat in the Rocky Mountain region is seasonal influenza – and it's not too late to get your flu vaccine. If you have questions, please contact your child's doctor or call our ParentSmart Healthline™ at 720-777-0123.
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 convenient urgent care locations.
