Why choose Children's Hospital Colorado?

At Children's Hospital Colorado, we see more, treat more and heal more kids than any hospital in our seven-state region. We're experienced and forward-thinking when it comes to the latest methods for diagnosis and treatment. This translates into less invasive treatment, less time, and less stress on you and your children.

Our specially trained pediatric experts recognize that families are our partners, which is why we deliver family-centered care. By making the hospital very family-friendly, we make it easier for parents and siblings to be involved in the day-to-day medical, emotional and social needs of their child.

Our hospital on Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora was designed and built to enhance our care for kids. Using data from an innovative type of study called evidence-based design, everything about our hospital was built to help us speed kids to recovery. From 100% private patient rooms to healing color therapy and views of nature, every detail of Children's Colorado was built to help kids get better faster and reduce stress on the whole family.

Our mission

When it was founded in 1908 in Denver, Children's Colorado set out to be a leader in providing the best healthcare outcomes for children. That calling has consistently made us one of the top children's hospitals in the nation and a place parents across the Rocky Mountain region have come to trust.

Our modern-day mission is to improve the health of children through the provision of high-quality coordinated programs of patient care, education, research and advocacy.

In addition to providing the best possible care for kids who need it, we also work hard to keep kids out of the hospital. Through medical research and advocacy efforts, we are working towards a world where kids are safer and healthier and will one day have less need for a hospital.
