Helen DeVos Children's Hospital, located in Grand Rapids, Michigan was created in 1993 to fill a critical gap in West Michigan health care—the need for a hospital devoted to infants, children and adolescents. Today, we are a regional referral center dedicated to improving the health and lives of children and families.  More than 150 physicians in 40 pediatric specialties care for more than 7,000 inpatients and more than 125,000 outpatients every year at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital.

 

The opening of the new Helen DeVos Children's Hospital on 1-11-11 marks a new era of children's health care in West Michigan. The 206-bed, 14-floor, 464,000 square foot facility represents more than four decades of steady progress in improving pediatric care and bringing pediatric specialists to the region.
