Meet Halden Scott, MD

Caring for children and their families during an emergency is an incredible privilege and responsibility. I strive to be worthy of this privilege by bringing a seriousness of medical preparation and a feeling of kindness to what is often a difficult and scary time for a family. I am proud that the emergency department is always open, ready to provide life-saving care, healing and help in crises, for any child who needs it.

For Patients:
I am interested in improving the rapid diagnosis and treatment of infection in children, in a life-threatening condition called sepsis. Working with teams at Children's Hospital Colorado, we have made great strides in improving early diagnosis and treatment of sepsis here. I also conduct research in Colorado and nationally to try to improve our knowledge of the best ways to diagnose and treat sepsis in children. Finally, I am involved in national and international committees developing guidelines and recommendations for the best ways for hospitals to identify and treat sepsis.
