What's Possible at Children's Hospital Colorado

2017: 'Here, It's Different'

At Children's Hospital Colorado, research is the act of hope. Here, we believe our commitment to the best possible care for the children who need it compels us to do better, drive harder, and set standards higher toward a simple pursuit: the eradication of childhood disease.

Here, our physicians, researchers, nurses, scientists, and many others push us closer to that goal each day. Their stories — of the work they do and of the young lives that work transforms — are fascinating, inspiring, harrowing, uplifting, and far too many to count. You’ll find 30 of them here.


2016: 'What Would Happen'

In 2016, we set out to reimagine child health — because what child health can become in the future, the promise it holds for our patients, even those not yet born, depends on the work we do today.

This book tells 29 stories of that work. They're stories of courage and creativity, of profound empathy and astonishing scientific achievement. They're stories of innovation, of collaboration between researchers, clinicians, and scientists. They're stories of creative approaches to pressing challenges, and of the courageous children who drove them forward.

We hope they'll inspire you as much as they've inspired us.
