Hurley Children's Hospital Is Now A Reality!
Nov. 15-Hurley Children’s Hospital was officially launched November 15, 2011 by Hurley physicians, staff and former pediatric patients.
Over the past 30 years, Hurley Medical Center has created a pediatric program of exceptional quality and national recognition, providing the most outstanding clinical care for our region’s children and their families – from our Level 1 Trauma Center (highest level) and Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU-highest level) to the region’s only Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and nationally recognized Asthma Disease Management Program. Thank you to all of the physicians, staff, patients and volunteers for making this event such a success.
Hurley Children’s Hospital: The undisputed leader in children’s health care in mid- and northern Michigan
The true mission of Hurley Children’s Hospital is to transform the lives of children and their families everywhere in the region.
Whether a child is in an accident or struggling with asthma, diabetes or cancer, we have assembled a team of exceptional pediatric specialists, nurses and staff, and have equipped them with today’s most advanced technology. We also offer programs to help keep kids healthy and safe so that they never have to come to the hospital.
Providing our region's children and their families with the most advanced specialists, treatments and technology
Our leading-edge facility houses the latest technologies and today’s most innovative treatments, eliminating the need for families to travel far from home for specialized services. And Hurley Children’s Hospital is designed around the comfort and well-being of our patients and their families, welcoming their input and including them in treatment decisions.
The region’s only Children's Emergency Department, NICU, PICU and Burn Unit
For years Hurley has been known for providing the highest level of critical care in our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), Burn Unit, and Children's Emergency Department– the only ones in the region.

We are here for you and your children because you are counting on us.
At Hurley, we know that children are our future and we have built this hospital for them. Their families count on us to be here, ready when they need us for sick or premature babies, adolescent health needs, and the accidents, injuries and burns that come along in life. When children are sick, our medical professionals care for them as if they were their own. Parents talk about the miracles we perform every day and how we help their children recover, evidence that it is our caring that patients and parents remember.
Think Healthy Kids, Think Hurley is truly at the heart of everything we do.
