Here, we believe that every child should have the best possible chance for a healthy, hopeful future
Children’s Hospital Colorado provides expert care to every child who needs us, and we never turn a family away. From broken bones to the rarest of cancers and everything in between, we treat more children than any hospital in the region — more than a quarter of a million kids each year.
Providing world-class care just for kids
Kids are developing and changing every day, and their health care needs are different from adults. When they get hurt or sick, they need specialized equipment, training and expertise that recognize the unique ways they differ from adults.
Through the generosity of donors, our patients are treated by highly trained pediatric specialists in a clinical environment designed just for them. Not only are we the only hospital in the region dedicated exclusively to children, but our health outcomes are among the very best. In fact, we are ranked among the Top 10 pediatric hospitals in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report.
This extraordinary, family-centered care wouldn’t be possible without donors like you. Thank you for supporting health, hope and healing for the hundreds of thousands of patients who come through our doors each year.
3 ways donors make a difference
World-class health care for children requires world-class talent — doctors, nurses, scientists, therapists and technicians who are specially trained in the field of pediatrics. Your gifts help us recruit and retain exceptional caregivers — the stars of their respective fields whose innovations help kids in our own backyard and around the globe. We’re home to leading child health researchers, world-renowned surgeons and top doctors who know their specialty areas better than anyone else. Your support is critical to our ability to attract and maintain our expert team — particularly the endowment donors whose generosity provides perpetual support for endowed chairholders. For the parents of a sick or injured child, that means peace of mind, knowing their child is in the very best hands.
Many illnesses and injuries affect more than just one organ or system, and no single specialist is the best at everything. That’s why our providers combine their expertise to coordinate care that recognizes patients’ unique needs. In the past, children with complex conditions had to make separate appointments with each specialist, requiring lots of hospital visits. But thanks to donors, Children’s Colorado is now home to one of the largest Multidisciplinary Clinics in the country. With super-sized exam rooms, multiple play areas and high-tech teleconferencing equipment, we can offer kids with complex needs a full spectrum of treatment, all in one day, in one innovative place. When we work together — across disciplines and in partnership with families — our patients reap the rewards.
Nationwide, young people are experiencing a mental health crisis, with an estimated 1 in 5 youth facing a mental health disorder. Unfortunately, many struggle to get the care and support they need. With the help of donors, Children’s Colorado is radically changing the mental health landscape so kids can get the right diagnosis and treatment before issues escalate to a crisis. We are expanding our facilities to help those who urgently need support today, while building partnerships and prevention programs to create a better system for helping youth statewide. Your support is removing barriers and expanding access to treatment options for kids in crisis.
