Pediatric Services

McLaren knows that our youngest patients have special needs. Our pediatric departments use this understanding to provide care that is individualized and age-specific to each patient we treat. The family is included as an integral component of any treatment program. Working together, we can maximize the individual’s health and potential for optimum recovery from illness or injury.

Pediatric Inpatient Unit at McLaren Macomb

In the Pediatrics Unit, children feel comforted with the kind of care that's geared just for them.

And parents feel better too, knowing that all pediatricians at McLaren Macomb are board-certified in pediatric medicine.

The Pediatrics Unit is located adjacent to the Family Birthing Center, on the Third floor of the East Tower of the hospital. This area of the hospital is dedicated to caring for children, from newborns to age 18.

Here, each private room is complete with a television, telephone, and sleep chair for a parent to stay overnight. Experienced nursing staff is sensitive to your child's needs and will do everything they can to make your child's stay easier. We understand that parents experience a great deal of stress when their children are hospitalized.

If a newborn requires additional medical care after nursery, a 15-bed Special Care Nursery is located within the birthing center. Here specially trained physicians and nurses provide care to babies. Parent visitation is encouraged.

The department also has a direct relationship with Children's Hospital of Michigan for more serious illnesses. Case managers and social workers are also available to provide assistance.
