University of Michigan Health at Sparrow Children's Center




At the Children’s Center, Michigan Medicine, Michigan State University and Sparrow pediatricians offer children’s healthcare services such as pediatric cardiology, pediatric psychiatry, pediatric genetics, pediatric hematology/oncology, pediatric neurology, pediatric neurosurgery, pediatric urology, pediatric gastroenterology, pediatric endocrinology, pediatric nephrology and pediatric ophthalmology. We provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and more.

We support parents and caretakers like you by giving kids the highest quality care, close to home.


Sparrow Children’s Center is home to Mid-Michigan’s only Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (RNICU). The RNICU is the regional destination for critically ill infants and premature babies who need some extra support.

If you are currently a patient elsewhere, our specially trained ground transport crew and care team will help bring your baby to Sparrow, where our experienced team of neonatologists can provide your baby with the expert care he or she needs.


When it comes to caring for your child’s health, we’re a team

At the Sparrow Children’s Center, our goal is family-centered pediatric care that keeps parents involved and informed. During daily rounds, you can talk one-on-one with your care team. And we keep your child’s chart right at the bedside, so you can easily review his or her diagnosis, lab results and plan of care.



More community and more resources to help families like yours

We know that supporting your child through an illness can feel like a daunting journey. But with the help of Sparrow support staff — and the whole Mid-Michigan community — you won’t be alone.

The children’s health center staff includes Child Life specialists who help children manage anxiety about medical procedures, deal with the stress of a hospital stay or handle any other health-related challenges.

Our volunteers are also here to help. The Davies Project provides transport for sick kids in Mid-Michigan. Former RNICU parents volunteer as mentors and guides to help current RNICU parents cope. We even get a twice-weekly visit from a top-notch team of certified therapy dogs.

Families with a little longer to travel can rely on the nearby Ronald McDonald House, which provides any caregiver of a hospitalized child with a welcoming place to stay, whatever their financial circumstances.
