Children’s Hospital Colorado Settles $25 Million Civil Claim in Olivia Gantt’s Death

A family’s $25 million civil claim against Children’s Hospital Colorado for alleged wrongdoings of the hospital while treating 7-year-old Olivia Gant has been “resolved,” people involved said this week.

Olivia Gant, a longtime patient at Aurora Hospital, died in 2017 of suspected medical abuse. Investigators believe that Olivia’s mother, Kelly Turner, faked her daughter’s illnesses and persuaded doctors at Children’s Hospital Colorado to perform unnecessary medical procedures for years, which ultimately led to Olivia’s death.

Turner is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of his daughter.

A Denver Post investigation this spring found that some doctors and nurses at Children’s Hospital Colorado suspected Turner was abusing their daughter, but the hospital did not report the providers’ concerns to the Department of Human Services, and its Instead of relying on an internal team to review doubts. The hospital eventually concluded that there was no need to alert outside authorities and allowed Olivia’s mother to stop the girl’s nutrition and take her to hospice.

According to a notice of lawsuit filed in 2020, some members of Olivia’s surviving family demanded $25 million from the hospital.
