Pediatric Specialty Services

Your children are unique. Because of their age, physical illness, mental health, or simply their unique genetics, no two children have the same healthcare needs. When they need a specialist, you want a doctor who knows how to care for children.

Our specialty pediatric services at Henry Ford work with primary care pediatricians to provide the best all-around care for your child. We’re with you every step of the way, from overall wellness to specific health concerns to inpatient services when you need them.

Specialty pediatric services

When it’s time to see a specialist, Henry Ford has many services designed to treat children, including:

Pediatric wellness

We also have the tools to help you and your children live well when you aren’t sick. Your pediatrician can provide information for the whole family about eating well, staying active, and living a healthy lifestyle.

For even more guided wellness advice, we have several programs and tools designed to help children live their best lives:

  • DK Kids -- a fun, cooking class approach to diet and nutrition
  • Let’s Get Healthy -- a 10-week program designed to give families the tools to live better in all areas of life
  • The 5-2-1-0 Family Wellness program -- a simple way to fit wellness into your everyday life, now including the 5-2-1-0 Kids! app to involve kids directly in their own wellness
  • Free interactive autism apps, developed by Henry Ford autism experts, that focus on specific areas of childhood development
