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 Services at McLaren Port Huron

Pediatric Inpatient Unit

Younger patients have special needs, especially when they have to visit a hospital. McLaren Port Huron's team takes pride in providing care that meets those special needs.

The goals of our compassionate, dedicated caregivers to our pediatric patients are to:

  • Provide care that is individualized and age-specific to each patient
  • Utilize a team approach to diagnosis and treat
  • Include the family as an integral component of the treatment program
  • Unique Environment Addresses Special Needs of Young Patients

To achieve those goals while recognizing the special needs of infants, children, and adolescents when hospitalization becomes necessary, McLaren Port Huron has set aside a special area just for our younger patients, which provides a unique setting tailored to the individual needs of young patients. The unit features an activity room, which provides a comfortable and enjoyable environment for toddlers and younger children. The activity room provides an especially attractive environment for our young patients who are separated from their homes during hospital stays.
