Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children – a pediatric system of care for HealthONE

Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, or RMHC, is the name given to HealthONE’s pediatric service line in all HealthONE hospitals that have committed to national standards of clinical excellence for children.

The evolution of pediatric services began more than 40 years ago at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center in Denver with founding physicians creating a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and other pediatric specialty services.

Physicians affiliated with RMHC are in private practices and are board certified or board eligible in their pediatric specialty. Our pediatric patients are not treated by interns or residents.

RMHC’s hospitals care for infants, children and teenagers from a six-state region every year.

RMHC has more than 300 affiliated pediatric specialists, neonatologists, and maternal-fetal specialists.

First Call for Children

First Call for Children, our free community service nurse triage advice line, puts parents in touch with a pediatric nurse for after hours questions about their child's health.

Community Benefit

As part of a community benefit, RMHC provides uncompensated care equal to other children’s hospitals in the region in addition to paying millions of dollars in federal and state taxes annually.

RMHC also provides outreach clinics and clinical education to underserved communities in a five-state region.
