A great workplace culture doesn’t happen by accident. It’s built intentionally and needs to be continually nurtured. That’s why we invest in our team members every day and foster a supportive environment that inspires them to do their best work. We’ve cultivated a caring community that works hard to achieve our mission of improving child health while embodying our values of humble expertise, generous service and boundless creativity. Plus, we know how to have fun.

A welcoming environment

We are a diverse workforce of professionals who come from all regions, backgrounds and life experiences, united in our mission to improve the health of children through the provision of high-quality, coordinated programs of patient care, education, research and advocacy.

“The atrium is very light, friendly and welcoming, everybody’s smiling, and everybody’s helping each other — and you don’t realize you’re in a hospital. And I think that’s the most important part for the families and the children.”

— Nikki, medical technologist lead

From the moment you walk in our doors, you can feel that here, it’s different. From little red wagons in our atrium to the artwork on our walls and the amenities we offer, our hospitals were designed to enhance healing and make every visit or extended stay more comfortable.

And when you join the team at Children’s Colorado, you are welcomed with open arms, joining a cohort of other new team members for an in-depth orientation experience. Through in-person and online courses, you’ll learn everything you need to get started — from safety procedures to healthcare benefits. We give you the tools you need to succeed not only in your first week, but during your first 90 days and beyond.

Ingrained throughout your orientation and day-to-day work is our commitment to creating an inclusive culture where every team member, patient and family member feels safe and valued. We know also that we can better serve our community when our team reflects our patient population. With organizational leadership from our Department of Diversity, Health Equity and Inclusion (DHE&I), we’re proud to offer training programs for all our team members, as well as team member resource groups that bring together those who share a common identity or interest and their allies to create space for discussion, education and celebration. Learn more about our commitment to DHE&I.

A place of excellence and innovation

As the number one pediatric hospital in the state and region, we see and treat more children than any other hospital in our seven-state area, providing kids with the expert care they need to feel better. We're looking for people with big hearts and an equally big commitment to doing exceptional work to join our team.

We’re the only children’s hospital in the region to partner with the University of Colorado School of Medicine as an academic medical center to explore new treatments and cures that give kids a chance at a healthier future. Our cutting-edge and collaborative research is pushing boundaries while having a direct impact on patient care. When you work at Children’s Colorado, you are impacting the future of child health.
