Beaumont Children’s Hospital is part of the Beaumont Hospitals system and is located in Royal Oak, Michigan. Access to children’s services is also available at Beaumont Hospital, Grosse Pointe and Troy. More than 100,000 times a year parents trust us to give their children the very best medical care. At our hospitals, patients and their families will find advanced technology, top specialists and the latest treatment methods, all designed to meet the unique needs of infants, children and adolescents.
A seven-bed pediatric unit with state-of-the-art technology, private rooms and a family-friendly environment opened in 2008. The unit allows children to receive medical treatment close to home. Rooms are furnished with a custom sleep chair to allow a parent to stay overnight. Children also benefit from state-of-the-art beds and customized cribs. For the child’s entertainment, 32-inch flat screen televisions with DVDs, videos and gaming systems are available. A playroom with age-appropriate toys allows children to engage in developmentally important activities.
Private treatment rooms are available for outpatient evaluations and procedures. The treatment room is also used for inpatient children undergoing unpleasant invasive procedures such as IV starts. This prevents children from associating their patient care room with unpleasant or painful procedures, so their bed remains a “safe place.”
The unit also has customized “smart pumps” for IV medication administration, and customized pediatric resuscitation equipment. A newly purchased “vein viewer” helps nurses and doctors identify appropriate sites for IV catheters, minimizing the discomfort for the child.
A board-certified pediatrician is present around the clock to provide patient care. Patients in the pediatric unit at Beaumont, Grosse Pointe, also benefit from having access to more than 200 board-certified general pediatricians, 83 pediatric medical and surgical subspecialists, and all of the services that have earned Beaumont Hospitals a ranking as the “Most Preferred Hospital in Southeast Michigan” by the National Research Corporation.
