Opening 2026

Pine Rest Pediatric Center of Behavioral Health*

We are excited to be helping to bring more mental health services for children and teens to West Michigan with the construction of a dedicated pediatric behavioral health center on our 68th Street Campus. The new pediatric center will dramatically expand services for Michigan families who have been struggling to find the care their children urgently need.
