Whether your child has mild, moderate or severe asthma, having a pediatric asthma specialist assess and treat his or her specific needs can mean your child can get healthier, faster.

At National Jewish Health, you and your child have the support of the leading respiratory hospital in the nation. Families come here from around the world to receive treatment they can’t find anywhere else.
There are two programs that children with asthma can enter at National Jewish Health to receive treatment based on the severity of their asthma and the level of difficulty in managing their disease: The Pediatric Outpatient Clinic and the Pediatric Day Program.
