At Marin General Hospital, pediatric care begins at birth, for those babies who require the expert attention of our Level II NICU – the ONLY neonatal unit in Marin County. Our pediatric program is the most comprehensive in all of Marin County and we have the expertise, experience, and equipment to provide exceptional care for kids from birth to age 18, whether the concern is a minor illness, a condition requiring hospitalization, or a medical emergency.
