The Beaumont Children’s Hospital Center for Human Development is a comprehensive program for the diagnosis and treatment of learning, behavioral and developmental disorders. Jessica Hauser, Ph.D., clinical psychologist, is the newest member of the team.
As a native of southeast Michigan, Dr. Hauser had been looking for an opportunity to come back to this area after eight years in Ohio and a year in Western Pennsylvania. The majority of her family and friends are within an hour to two-hour drive of Metro Detroit, and she’ll become an aunt for the first time this August!
What drew you to Beaumont and the Center for Human Development?
On a professional level, I was certainly drawn to Beaumont’s excellent reputation and the opportunity to be a part of the growing Beaumont Children’s Hospital. I enjoy being a part of a team committed to improving the health and well-being of children. In addition to taking great care of our patients, Beaumont Health System also takes great care of its employees. I love the hospital’s emphasis on the well-being of the employee as a whole person, not just as a worker. It’s nice to work for a company that recognizes the importance of their employees’ health, well-being and work-life balance.
What are the unique aspects of the Center for Human Development?
I really appreciate our multidisciplinary approach to care. We have a wonderful team of psychologists, physicians, counselors, tutors and support staff who provide a thorough, well-rounded approach to patient care. I also think we do a great job of involving patients’ families, teachers, and other important individuals in the child’s life, as appropriate.
