Children's Hospital Colorado

The T(w)een Zone on Anschutz Medical Campus

The Patricia Crown Family T(w)een Zone is a safe, therapeutic healing environment designed to meet the needs of our teen and “tween” patients and their families. Under the guidance and expertise of our Child Life Specialists, the T(w)een Zone is a special space that allows patients to be themselves and to foster peer relationships. The T(w)een Zone was fully renovated in 2014 thanks to a generous donation from Teammates for Kids.

The T(w)een Zone is a space just for tweens and teens (kids 10 years and older) at Children’s Colorado on the Anschutz Medical Campus. Patients and their siblings or friends can enjoy this state-of-the-art, 3,000-square-foot lounge that offers a variety of activities.
