Children's Hospital Colorado

After Hours Telephone Care Program

The After Hours Telephone Care program is a telephone triage and advice service for families of subscribing physicians. Pediatric nurses take evening and weekend calls to answer questions, triage for urgent symptoms, teach home care interventions, or if necessary, direct them to an After Hours Care facility. Children's Hospital Colorado staffs several emergency and urgent care sites in the metro area, so care is available closer to home during evenings and weekends.

  • After hours telephone coverage for private practice subscribing physicians
  • Specially trained pediatric triage nurses
  • Referrals to after hours emergency and urgent care locations throughout the Denver-metro area
  • Use of pediatric standardized triage and advice protocols authored by Dr. Bart Schmitt
