Children’s Hospital Colorado Doctors Consistently Ranked as 5280 Top Docs

Children's Hospital Colorado | August 01, 2020

Children’s Hospital Colorado providers are incredibly different. You’ll find their difference in the outcomes they post, the way they consistently outperform national averages and the work they do day in and day out to advance their fields.   

So when it comes to staying on top of it, they’re downright predictable. After all, they’ve been appearing in the pages of 5280’s Top Docs issue for 27 years and counting. This year 92 of our doctors made the Top Docs list, and we swept 18 categories. 

Incredibly different times call for incredibly different care, too. As the world, and the greater Denver region, has shifted to meet COVID-19 head-on, our providers have been at the forefront, forging a new, hopeful path. 5280’s Top Docs issue features some of these stories as well, including how pediatric infectious disease specialist Sam Dominguez, MD, helped launch the first hospital-based COVID-19 testing in the state. It also highlights efforts by Kyle Annen, DO, Medical Director of Transfusion Services, to make Children’s Colorado the first hospital in the state to collect convalescent plasma. 

Congratulations to our incredibly different providers, including our 64 Top Dentists who were featured in 5280’s May issue. We are grateful and honored that you serve the Children’s Colorado mission.
