Patient Referrals Toolkit

As referring providers, you're not only our partners in patient care but instrumental members of our care team. Together, we can provide the highest quality, most comprehensive patient care. 

Referral guidelines

Before you make a referral, please review our referral guidelines to help you provide the best possible care, choose the best approach for treatment and determine when it's time to refer to a specialist. 

Refer a patient

You can easily make a routine referral by submitting it directly to the specialty or department you need. Use our Directory of Services to locate specific department phone and fax numbers.

Submit electronically

Use our web-based portals Children's Colorado ConnectTM or PedsConnectTM
