As a kid (and even as an adult), a visit to the hospital can be scary. Our new pediatric hospital in Colorado Springs is designed with kids and their needs in mind.
At Children's Hospital Colorado, Colorado Springs, we understand that families are our partners in their child's care, which is why we've created a space that's welcoming and full of family-friendly resources.
We want you and your child to feel as comfortable as possible during your visit, whether you’re here for a doctor's appointment or clinic visit, an overnight stay or surgery. If you have any questions during your visit, you'll find information about where to go within the hospital at the welcome desk, as well as information about Colorado Springs provided from the Colorado Springs Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The welcome desk is staffed by volunteers Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The Ronald McDonald Room is a place for families and visitors of patients to get away from everyday hospital stresses. Within a restful environment, families and visitors have access to amenities like complimentary food and beverages, a children’s play area, a kitchen area with a microwave and laundry facilities.
Play is an important part of healing, which is why we have three play areas, a Creative Play Center for siblings and an outdoor playground for patients and their families.
At the Family Media Area, parents and families have access to phones, a computer, a printer and business resources. The Media Area enables families to take care of personal business, check emails or follow-up on medical information without ever leaving the hospital.
