NOTICE: Construction delays on Colfax Ave. and surrounding streets

The City of Aurora has started a five-phase, three-year construction project near Anschutz Medical Campus. Construction crews have closed multiple lanes on Colfax Avenue between Peoria and Scranton Streets as well as southbound Peoria Street. Please check traffic and allow extra time to get to your child's appointment.

This construction project is designed to address flood risk in and around the campus by updating the storm water system. Please visit Aurora Water's website for project updates.

The T(w)een Zone on Anschutz Medical Campus

The Patricia Crown Family T(w)een Zone is a safe, therapeutic healing environment designed to meet the needs of our teen and “tween” patients and their families. Under the guidance and expertise of our Child Life Specialists, the T(w)een Zone is a special space that allows patients to be themselves and to foster peer relationships. The T(w)een Zone was fully renovated in 2014 thanks to a generous donation from Teammates for Kids.

The T(w)een Zone is a space just for tweens and teens (kids 10 years and older) at Children’s Colorado on the Anschutz Medical Campus. Patients and their siblings or friends can enjoy this state-of-the-art, 3,000-square-foot lounge that offers a variety of activities.
