Keeping You Safe: Patient Safety During the Coronavirus Pandemic

It’s an unsettling time for everyone, and it’s understandable to have concerns about bringing your family to a clinic or hospital. But if your child needs medical care like surgery, urgent or emergency care, mental healthcare, vaccinations or a checkup for a chronic condition, it’s critical that they receive care from a team of pediatric experts. At Children’s Hospital Colorado, we’re here to guide your family through these strange times so your kids can get the high-quality care they need and deserve. 

Our commitment to patient safety while providing medical care

Keeping our patients, families, team members and community safe at our hospital is our top priority. Though we can’t control the world outside, we can (and do) control the environment within our walls. Watch the video below with your kids to learn how to prepare for your visit to Children's Colorado.

For many types of visits, telehealth is also a great option for accessing great care from the comfort and privacy of your own home, and our Telehealth Program now covers all of our clinics and specialties. If you’re interested in potentially making your next visit a virtual one, ask your provider, scheduler or care team.
