Focused Child Medical Care Near You

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.

Inpatient Pediatric Care Units

Pediatric unit nurses have specialized training in the care of children ages newborn to 18 years. They are well skilled in caring for a wide variety of childhood illnesses, as well as those patients requiring surgical interventions.

The family is a vital force in the health and well-being of the hospitalized youngster. We encourage parents to remain with their child during his or her hospital stay. Additionally, liberal visiting hours for siblings help ease the normal anxiety experienced by young patients while they are in the hospital.
