A major emphasis at National Jewish Health continues to be the pediatric program, National Jewish Health For Kids, specifically designed for children and adolescents with allergic, pulmonary and immune system disorders. National Jewish Health for Kids is a program of dedicated care from America's best pediatric specialists.

National Jewish Health for Kids is unique, comprehensive, effective and available only at National Jewish Health, the leading respiratory hospital in the nation.

With National Jewish Health for Kids, we have created an environment in response to the increasing demand from parents and patients for treatment of asthma, atopic dermatitis, food allergies, rhinitis, immune problems and recurrent infections—all diseases that are increasing at alarming rates throughout the country.

The development of National Jewish Health for Kids was through the redesign and enhancement of existing pediatric programs and increasing our capabilities to make it better for patients and their families. This has translated into better patient diagnosis, advanced diagnostic testing, individualized therapeutic interventions, outcome monitoring, and communication with families and their physicians.

Our goal is to remain leaders in these areas using the most advanced technologies and interventions as well as bridging clinical and basic research. This is all in keeping with the cohesive strategic plan developed for the Department of Pediatrics and National Jewish Health.

Pediatric Nurse Line

Call 303.398.1239

Our Pediatrics Department offers a Pediatric Nurse Line service for our patients, to help parents when children are having urgent issues with respiratory or allergic conditions.

  • Phone triage service is answered by our nurses and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Walk-in triage is available Monday – Saturday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Please call before you come to National Jewish Health. This will save you time and make sure that coming to our campus is the appropriate place for the care your child needs.

When you call, one of our pediatric nurses will help determine what type of care your child needs and  the appropriate setting to get that care.

If you are instructed to bring your child to the National Jewish Health main campus (1400 Jackson Street in Denver), please go to the Immediate Care entrance on this map and proceed straight ahead to the end of the hall. Immediate Care will be on your right. You will be checked in and a staff member will then escort you to the pediatric unit, if appropriate.

  • Altitude sickness
  • Asthma attack
  • Change in supplemental oxygen needs.
  • Croup
  • Eczema flare
  • Fever, sore throat, ear pain
