Because there's not much that's sadder than a sick child, Children's Hospital of Michigan is here to help. The organization cares for children from birth to adolescence with some 230 beds and is linked to the Detroit Medical Center and Wayne State University. The children's hospital provides a full spectrum of adolescent care including cardiology, critical care, emergency, oncology, rehabilitation, and respiratory services. It also performs research and is one of a handful of hospitals testing new drugs to treat spinal muscular atrophy in youngsters. The hospital, established in 1886, works to make itself kid-friendly by providing its patients with playrooms, activity centers, computer labs, and classrooms.
