Preparing for Your Stay at University of Colorado Hospital

What to Expect When You Come

At University of Colorado Hospital, we believe that patients and families are our partners in health.

While you are at the hospital, “speak up” and let us know:

  • What you think
  • If you are worried about anything
  • What you may need

Our new hospital is designed with you and your family in mind. While your hospital stay may not be easy for you, we intend to offer the very best care, emotional support and education throughout your time with us.
