Ponzio Surgery Center
Located on the 2nd floor just to the right of the main elevators, the Ponzio Surgery Center includes 14 state-of-the-art operating rooms and many features designed to reduce stress and increase comfort for both patients and their families. Prior to surgery, the play area allows kids to relax with arts and craft activities, games, books, computers and a TV. Families can walk with their child into the operating suite and then greet him/her in recovery. A lactation room is connected to the waiting area for nursing mothers.
If your child is scheduled for surgery at Children’s Hospital Colorado, you can schedule a pre-surgery tour with one of our Therapeutic Recreation/Child Life Specialists. These specialists have specific training to discuss the surgery with your child in a non-threatening and age-appropriate manner.
