The new clinic is a joint venture by the Olivia Caldwell Foundation and the CU School of Medicine-Children’s Hospital in Colorado with support from the Wyoming Medical Center.

The clinic will allow children fighting serious illnesses to receive checkups and areas of treatment without traveling to Children’s Hospital in the Denver area.

According to the clinic’s Facebook page, cardiac specialists from CU School of Medicine-Children’s Colorado will begin seeing pediatric patients in the clinic in November. Pediatric clinics in endocrinology and pulmonology will start in early 2020 with others to follow.

The open house starts Tuesday, October 29 at 4:30 p.m. The clinic is located in Suite 201 on the second floor of the McMurry Medical Arts Building at 419 S. Washington Street.
