Children’s medical needs are different than adults. Kids are developing and changing every day. They have faster heart rates, growing bones and smaller airways. Kids also respond to medical tests, drugs and treatments differently, making specialized equipment and testing critical. While other emergency departments have equipment needed to diagnose and treat the general adult population, Children’s Colorado has specialized equipment that is designed for children and teens — and we have teams who know how to use it.
And unlike other hospitals and urgent care locations, we work alongside your child's primary healthcare provider and communicate about your child’s care, so they will have the best outcome possible.
