Colorado Springs Magazine Highlights the Best Doctors in Southern Colorado

Springs Magazine | September 08, 2021

Two years ago, when we opened our new hospital in Colorado Springs, we doubled down on our commitment to offer our Southern Colorado neighbors the best medical care possible close to home. Studies show that patients respond better when they have immediate access to healthcare services, and our commitment to kids and families in Southern Colorado is to offer world-class pediatric treatment and research in their own backyard.

From the moment Children's Colorado, Colorado Springs opened, we have offered that level of service day in and day out. We continue to be recognized for our excellent outcomes, our exacting safety standards and our relentless innovation. The most recent recognition comes from Colorado Springs Magazine’s annual Top Doctors list.

This year, an unprecedented 39 of our Colorado Springs providers have been recognized. Our doctors swept 10 of the list’s healthcare categories, including seven of the nine pediatric categories.

It is a testament to the quality, integrity and commitment of all of our providers that we are again recognized for our excellence even amid a pandemic. Children and their families in our region have faced unexpected and frightening challenges, particularly in the form of mental health issues exacerbated by the pandemic. And yet, as the world, including the Southern Colorado region, has continually shifted and evolved to meet COVID-19 head-on, our providers have been at the forefront, forging a new, hopeful path.

About Colorado Springs' top doctors 

Each year, Colorado Springs Magazine surveys doctors in the El Paso County Medical Society to learn who they would recommend if they or a family member needed care. The following Children's Colorado physicians were recognized in the 2021 “Top Docs” list.
