Adolescent Medicine - Clinical Services


 

The Adolescent Medicine Clinic at Children's Hospital Colorado offers a full range of primary, secondary, and tertiary health care to teenagers in the Denver metropolitan area. Consultative services are provided to adolescents with complex physical and emotional problems who are referred from throughout the Rocky Mountain area.

The Eating Disorders Program at Children's Colorado is recognized nationally for the management of complicated cases, providing both inpatient and outpatient services.

The Colorado Adolescent Maternity Program (CAMP) at Children's Colorado is a multidisciplinary prenatal and postnatal program that addresses three critical issues in maternal and child health: the frequency of late, inadequate prenatal care; the large number of preterm births; and the high rate of recidivism, school failure, and welfare dependency among adolescent mothers and their children.

The Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology Clinic at Children's Hospital Colorado includes a multidisciplinary team of pediatricians and gynecologists with expertise in evaluating abnormal Pap smears; chronic lower abdominal pain; amenorrhea and dysfunctional uterine bleeding; persistent vaginitis; dysmenorrheal; and they provide contraception for those with chronic diseases.

The Adolescent Family Planning Clinic, BC4U (Birth Control for You), is a new expanded program offering free birth control methods to adolescents and young adults. Although both the Adolescent Medicine and Young Mothers Clinic have always provided birth control services to teens, through expanded Title X funding, we have opened this new clinical service with outreach into the community. The program is focusing on long acting contraception, IUDs, Implanon and Depo-Provera. Our goal has been to develop a model of family planning care for adolescents and young adults that will improve their knowledge of and access to contraception and increase awareness to adolescents in our community who are currently unaware of the family planning services we offer. We have three locations that these services are offered at:
