Pikes Peak Pediatric Pathways

Pediatric Care Services

Are you experiencing the challenges of a life-limiting illness involving a child?  The Pediatric Pathways Program can help you and your little one live more fully with a complex serious illness.  

Program Overview

Patient with Nurse PractitionerOur specialized team of medical and clinical support services surrounds the family with the right care at the right time, in their own home to improve the quality of life for those living with serious illness.

Our team focuses on providing relief from the pain, symptoms, and stress of a serious illness for both the patient and the family.  It is appropriate at any stage in a serious illness and can be provided alongside curative treatment.
