AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) — Children’s Hospital Colorado said in a press release on Thursday that COVID-19 has created several urgent needs for their institution.
The hospital is currently working to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, while also supporting patients, families and caregivers.
“As we navigate this rapidly changing situation, we remain certain of three things: kids and families are unbelievably resilient, our caregivers are extraordinarily brave and our supporters are incredibly generous. Today, we call on the community to help us continue the lifesaving work being performed at Children’s Colorado during a time when the nation needs more from health care experts than ever before.”Jennifer Roe Darling, President and CEO of Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation
