Sparrow is the region's primary provider of pediatric tertiary care.

Children who are ill or injured have different medical and emotional needs than adults. The Granger Pediatric Emergency Department at Sparrow is the mid-Michigan region's first and only emergency room designed, equipped and staffed specifically to meet those needs.

From smaller equipment to colorful décor designed to ease anxiety, every aspect of Sparrow's pediatric ER is tailored for the care and comfort of children from birth to age 20. Young patients and their parents also have the comfort and security of their own waiting room, separate from adult emergency patients, and all-private exam rooms.

Critically ill or injured children throughout mid-Michigan have rapid, 24/7 access to the pediatric emergency department thanks to the Survival Flight air medical helicopter and ground transport.
