Choosing a pediatrician is an important and personal decision and we want you to feel at ease with the care you and your child will receive.


The Pediatric Center is a Certified Medical Home Practice endorsed by the Colorado Department of Healthcare Policy & Financing.  As such we have met all of the Colorado Medical Home Standards of Care assuring Continuous, Comprehensive, Coordinated, Culturally Competent, and Quality health care where the family is a valued partner of the health care team.



We are very sad to annouce that Dr. Sheela Mahnke has left The Pediatric Center.  Dr. Mahnke had been offered a position closer to her home and has choosen to pursue this opportunity.  We wish her all the best.  We will miss her.

Dr. Tanney is in the process of finding a new partner, who will be able to live up to our high standards of care.


The manufacturers of both the injectable flu vaccine and the Flumist have been very delayed in delivering their vaccines this year.   

At this time we have received enough Flumist to provide a limited number of shot clinics, for the Flumist only, which will be scheduled as follows:                

      Saturday, 10/25, from 9:00 to 12pm                    CURRENTLY FULL

      Tuesday, 10/28, from 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm           CURRENTLY FULL

      Tuesday, 11/4 from 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm              

                        On these dates Flumist will be given to patients with scheduled appointments.  These appointments will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.  As soon as all the slots are filled we will stop making appointments.

Flumist can be given to children over the age of two years who do not have a history of chronic respiratory illness, such as Asthma.

We have been notified by the manufacturer, that the injectible flu vaccine for children over 3 years of age will not be delivered until the week of November 19th.  We apologize for this delay and are working to find other avenues to procur this vaccine sooner.

We will be scheduling more clinics as we receive more stock.  Please check back here for updates as we receive more of the vaccine.
