McLaren Greater Lansing is proud to provide inpatient hospital care and traditional pediatric services in outpatient settings at clinics throughout our community.
Younger patients have special needs, especially when they have to visit a hospital. McLaren Greater Lansing'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 Greater Lansing 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.
Family: A Vital Force
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.
The nursing staff of McLaren Greater Lansing's pediatrics unit makes every effort to accommodate visitation by parents and siblings throughout hospitalization, unless such visitation will hinder the child's condition or treatment.
