Funds raised support life enhancement services for hospitalized children, including child life services, music therapy, palliative care, guided imagery during medical treatments and more. These services help our youngest patients in many ways, including reducing fear and anxiety, helping patients know what to expect from treatment, reducing pain and the need for pain medication, and improving the patient and family experience.
As southwest Michigan’s only children’s hospital, Bronson Children’s Hospital is committed to maintaining a full complement of pediatric specialists to treat seriously ill and injured children. Your generous support helps ensure the highest level of pediatric care that children and their families count on to be here when they need it. By coming together, we can help secure the future of children’s healthcare in our community.
