Children's Hospital Colorado

Coronavirus Update

We are prepared and ready to treat patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, the condition caused by the coronavirus that first appeared in late 2019. Our clinical team has been specially trained on how to identify, isolate and treat patients with this and other contagious illnesses. However, for perspective, our bigger threat in the Rocky Mountain region is seasonal influenza – and it's not too late to get your flu vaccine. If you have questions, please contact your child's doctor or call our ParentSmart Healthline™ at 720-777-0123.
