Pediatric care closer to home
For the first time in southern Colorado history, kids and families now have a pediatric hospital to call their own. Opened on July 17, 2019, Children’s Hospital Colorado, Colorado Springs serves as the area’s first pediatric-only hospital, providing southern Colorado kids with expert care, much closer to home.
The hospital features the first and only pediatric emergency department in southern Colorado. First and only pediatric behavioral health emergency program in the region. The only pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) between Denver and Albuquerque. And the first and only pediatric surgery center, pediatric sleep study center and epilepsy monitoring unit in the region.
Every family deserves access to the best pediatric care

Invest in a better future for pediatric mental health
Children’s Colorado envisions creating a comprehensive behavioral health care delivery model focused on detection, early intervention, and preventive care. We seek to address current gaps in service by developing a more comprehensive continuum of outpatient behavioral health services within southern Colorado. To fill the void and meet southern Colorado communities’ needs, Children’s Colorado is also developing a new site to provide behavioral health services, to include a daytime, pediatric, partial-hospitalization behavioral health program; group and individual therapy; and telehealth services.
With the support of our philanthropic community, we will be able to provide these much needed services in our southern Colorado community.Give Now Learn More About Pediatric Mental Health
