Acute Respiratory Clinic (Pediatric)

National Jewish Health for Kids has launched a Pediatric Acute Respiratory Clinic to treat suspected COVID-19 patients suffering from moderate respiratory symptoms. Moderate symptoms are fever, shortness of breath and/or cough that are not easily treated at home, but do not require emergency medical attention. All patients and visitors will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms before being allowed to enter the facility.

COVID-19Same day and next day COVID-19 pediatric appointments are available seven days a week (closed on holidays). Pediatric appointments are with dedicated staff in an isolated area of National Jewish Health. Children with mild symptoms are urged to stay home and recover, and those with severe symptoms should seek emergency care. All patients should call 303.398.1355 to schedule an appointment in the Pediatric Acute Respiratory Clinic before arriving. Patients will receive a call from a pediatric nurse to ensure that the Pediatric Acute Respiratory Clinic is the appropriate clinic for their child's care.  

Please note that only one visitor is allowed to accompany a pediatric patient at this time.
