Close to Home Pediatric Care in Northern Michigan

Every child is precious – and we treat each one as if they were our own. Munson Healthcare board-certified pediatric specialists, pediatric nurses, and child life specialists, approach children of all ages with calm gentleness to ease their fears – and the fears of their parents. Our experienced pediatric team has specialized training in the distinct medical and emotional needs of these small patients. We provide the best care possible so children can quickly become well again.

“Children are the most honest, perfect, most beautiful patients there are.” -Pediatrician Robert Sprunk, MD

Hospital and Neonatal Intensive Care for Infants and Children

Hospital care is available for infants and children at Munson Healthcare hospitals in Charlevoix, Gaylord, Grayling, Manistee, and Traverse City. Newborn and neonatal services are available at Cadillac Hospital. Munson Healthcare hospitals partner with DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Mich., and C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, Mich. for advanced pediatric care, such as pediatric surgery.

Munson Medical Center also has a Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – the only NICU north of Grand Rapids, Mich. The NICU is staffed by board-certified neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners, and specially-trained neonatal nurses to care for our littlest patients. 

Visiting pediatric heart and cancer specialists hold clinics in Cadillac and Traverse City for consultations and follow-up care for children who need advanced services.
