We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
The Emergency Department staff at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan provides care at our main facility in Detroit, as well as our satellite ED in Troy, MI. We enjoy brand new, state-of-the-art ED facilities at both locations, which were designed using LEAN methodology. In Detroit, our ED is part of a new critical care tower that houses new operative suites, imaging department and a new 2-floor PICU and NICU.
This ED provides care for approximately 100,000 sick and injured children each year. These patients are cared for in a 56-bed ED, with a 4-bed resuscitation bay and a separate 6-bed mental health unit. The ED is divided into pods, where care teams can efficiently provide safe, high-quality care.
Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) fellows exclusively work in the area of our ED that cares for the highest acuity medical, surgical and trauma patients. They are always supervised by fellowship trained PEM physicians and have the opportunity to clinically collaborate with other PEM physicians, pediatricians and Advanced Practice Providers.
