Children’s Hospital Colorado on the Anschutz Medical Campus turns 10
It’s been nearly 10 years since Children’s Hospital Colorado opened the doors of its brand new hospital on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
It was Sept. 29, 2007 — the day an ambulance convoy carefully transferred 111 patients from our former facility in downtown Denver to a state-of-the-art, 1.45-million-square-foot building on a world-class medical campus. A decade ago, our community gave $273 million to build the new facility, and today, it’s one of the top pediatric hospitals in the nation.
For our longtime supporters, 10 years may seem like a relatively minor milestone. After all, Children’s Colorado has been healing kids for more than a century and now boasts 16 locations across the state and numerous care alliances with regional health systems. Yet for a community that has continually made the health and well-being of our children a top priority, the 10-year anniversary of our new hospital is an occasion worth celebrating.
Since moving to the Anschutz Medical Campus in 2007, the number of children who need our help has risen dramatically. Thanks to our donors, we are providing these patients with the best care, while attracting thousands of pediatric experts to an already superior team. Today, Children’s Colorado sees more, treats more and heals more kids than any other hospital in the region.
Thank you for your support of Children’s Colorado. Here’s to many more decades of health, hope and healing on the Anschutz Medical Campus and beyond.
