We use evidence-based care
Children's Colorado uses evidence-based medicine to help our doctors and staff make decisions about safe, effective tests and treatments. This keeps us continually up-to-speed on what works by using science, research and technology. Evidence-based care, backed by scientific research, can also mean less time in the hospital — and less stress on you and your child.
We have board-certified doctors
Our board-certified doctors are experts in their specialty or sub-specialty of pediatric medicine. This means they have gone through intensive training and passed all tests required to achieve this highest level of certification. In addition to completing years of school and residencies, and passing medical exams required by the state of Colorado, our board-certified doctors must also stay up-to-date on the newest medical techniques, science and technology.
We have more than 3,000 pediatric experts
Pediatric experts are doctors who train in pediatrics after medical school and get additional training in a sub-specialty, such as infectious disease, surgery or neurology. This adds at least three years and often more than six years of post-graduate medical education specific to children. And it’s not just our doctors who have years of training.
Parents take comfort in the fact that many of our nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, technicians, social workers, child life specialists and counselors are also specifically trained in pediatrics. Most of our caregivers have years of formal training in children’s health in addition to their general medical education.
