Kids are incredibly different from adults, from their growing bodies to their developing minds. That’s why they need incredibly different care — the kind you’ll find at Children’s Hospital Colorado.
How our care is different
All these differences affect the ways that kids respond to tests, medications and treatment. Not every hospital is equipped to understand the differences and deliver appropriate care. At Children’s Colorado that’s our entire purpose.

Kids need a hospital just for kids — and Children’s Colorado is that kind of place. We provide care designed for kids, so every child gets the treatment, attention and compassion they need to feel better.
