The Pediatric & Adolescent providers at Memorial Healthcare offer compassionate, patient-centered care in Shiawassee County and its surrounding areas. Besides the main campus in Owosso, Michigan, the non-profit hospital has numerous offices in the communities of Auburn, Chesaning, Corunna, Durand, Laingsburg, Okemos, Ovid-Elsie, Perry, and St. Johns.
Memorial Healthcare Pediatric Providers
The providers deliver comprehensive and ongoing medical care to children from birth through adolescence. Care services range from general wellness management to diagnosing and treating childhood illnesses and conditions.
Inpatient Pediatric Unit
Babies to 16-year-olds with severe illnesses can seek care at the inpatient pediatric unit. The nurse’s station in this department has a central location to assure parents that their children receive continual care and observation from providers.
Memorial Healthcare recognizes that parents and sometimes other family members wish to play an active role in the children’s care. We welcome parents who wish to spend the night with their child. The department features easily accessible showers and a lounge for family members visiting their loved ones. However, families should inquire to the medical team about visiting hours, as guest visitations may be limited.
Great Start Collaborative
To supplement the efforts of Shiawassee Regional Education Service District, Memorial Healthcare serves as an active member of Great Start Collaborative. This association comprises parents, educators, healthcare professionals, faith organizations, community leaders, businesses, and agencies across Michigan State and is led by the Early Childhood Investment Corporation (ECIC).
The main goal of this initiative is to provide every child with a Great Start, which includes health, safety, academic success, and overall quality of life. It consists of the following two groups:
- Great Start Collaborative Team: This team facilitates the creation of a coherent Early Childhood System that encompasses all individuals and organizations that participate in the initiative.
- Great Start Parent Coalition: Parents are essential to the success of their children and the Great Start Collaborative. This association enables them to work together and gather public investment in early childhood education. It also allows them to advocate for students to local and state government agencies and develop educational programs for other parents
