In addition to providing birthing services at the Bronson BirthPlace, Bronson Methodist Hospital is southwest Michigan's only Perinatal Center, providing the highest level of care for women experiencing high-risk pregnancies. For premature or critically ill infants, Bronson provides care in the region's only Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Bronson is a member of NACHRI, the National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions. This makes it one of a select number of places in the country where infants and children can get the best care possible, from experts in virtually every field of children's medicine. Bronson is one of only six children's hospitals in Michigan, and the only one in southwest Michigan.
