Denver Health is an integrated healthcare system in the public sector and has one of the largest and oldest Community Health Services in the United States. The hospital has been in operation for more than 150 years and its community clinics for over 45 years.  Last year there were nearly 400,000 outpatient visits, including nearly 100,000 pediatric visits. Denver Health provides the medical home for 40% of the children in Denver County. It is also a Level I Trauma Center.  Pre-hospital care provided by Denver County EMS is directed by the Emergency Department.  Denver Health also operates the Denver School-Based Clinics, with 15 clinics operating in high risk schools, as well as the Rocky Mountain Drug and Poison Center, providing toxicology consultants and poison control services for Colorado and surrounding states.

The Public Health Department provides services for disease control and prevention including immunizations, Tuberculosis, STD and HIV clinics. Non-medical detox services are provided at Denver Cares. There are inpatient adolescent and adult psychiatry units and a Psychiatry Emergency Room. 

In 2006, the hospital opened a new pavilion dedicated to the health of women and children.  This wing houses the Pediatrics services which include the general inpatient ward, Pediatric ICU, Newborn Nursery, and NICU.  The hospital also has a dedicated Pediatric Emergency Department. Denver Health faculty are generalists, who are dedicated to providing care for the underserved and who enjoy teaching in a community-based Pediatric program.

Denver Health provides an invaluable educational experience. We believe the combination of a modern tertiary care Children’s Hospital and a community program is an excellent way to train pediatricians.
