We’re here for kids who need us
Kids will always need great pediatric care, and Children’s Colorado is exercising all precautions to keep patients, families and team members safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Children’s Colorado has reopened pediatric services, procedures and in-person appointments that were suspended temporarily during stay-at-home orders in early 2020. We encourage patients and families to contact their care team via MyChart or telephone with any questions.
Ask about our telehealth options
Children’s Colorado offers telehealth visits, when clinically appropriate, in every clinic and specialty we offer.
Through a secure video platform, our providers can do everything from examine rashes to evaluate breathing problems — all with the privacy and ease of being at home with no distractions. Please reach out to your child's provider if you are interested in scheduling a virtual visit, or read our FAQs about telehealth at Children's Colorado.
Keeping patients safe
Keeping patients safe is our top priority. When telehealth isn’t an option, or when you prefer to be seen in person, we can help. We’ve taken specific safety measures throughout our locations – from testing to visitor screening to air filtration – to keep everyone safe, and comfortable.
Learn how to schedule an appointment at our locations throughout the Denver Metro and Southern Colorado regions.
COVID-19 testing and vaccines
If you’re worried your child has the coronavirus or would like them to get vaccinated, we can help with that, too. We offer COVID testing for kids and COVID-19 vaccination for children and community members 12 and older.
