Pediatric Emergency Care

Should your child need emergency care, you’ll be glad to know that Covenant HealthCare has the only designated and comprehensive Pediatric Emergency Care Center serving mid-Michigan and the lower north Michigan region. In our twenty-county service area, Covenant is the only Level II Trauma Center verified by the American Academy of Surgeons for both adult and pediatric trauma care with only board-certified emergency physicians and trauma surgeons and the most comprehensive emergency department caring for more patients than any other emergency department in the region.

When the Covenant Emergency Care Center was designed and built in 2000-2001, a special area was designated just for children. We understand that children are different from adults, which means their health needs require individual attention and closer monitoring. Each pediatric treatment room is child-friendly and appointed with child-sized medical equipment. What’s more, each room is uniquely designed in vibrant colors featuring familiar childhood themes incorporating paintings, art, fish tanks, Eye Spy shadow boxes and more, which fosters a more pleasant experience for ill children and their parents. Each room also features a TV to make children feel more comfortable and provide a distraction during a procedure or test.

If a child requires more advanced medical care, Covenant has board-certified pediatric intensivists on staff to provide enhanced care in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Additionally, Covenant has affiliations to offer 24-hour air medical transport for children who are seriously ill or injured to get them to medical care as quickly as possible.
