Helen DeVos Children's Hospital is a pediatric hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and a division of Spectrum Health. It is named for Helen DeVos, wife of Amway founder Richard DeVos, a major donor.[1]

Overview

The hospital offers 40 pediatric specialty services. The hospital received Magnet Recognition status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center 2009. The hematology, oncology and bone marrow transplant program received the American Society of Clinical Oncology Award for the program's work to improve cancer care through clinical research, one of eight hospitals in the U.S. to receive this recognition.

The hospital built a 14 story children's hospital at 100 Michigan St. NE in downtown Grand Rapids. The building opened January 11, 2011.[citation needed]

In 2008, the hospital implemented a collaborative program with Priority Health called the Children's Healthcare Access Program that provides children enrolled in Medicaid more access to primary care.[2]
