The Department of General Pediatrics is committed to improve the health of children in our society by modelling the best practices of general Pediatrics and promoting the role of the general paediatrician as a provider of primary health care doctor for children and their families with Care, Commitment and Compassion.
The dedicated Pediatric team focuses on the care and health of children till 18 years of age. Their clinical expertise, outpatient and diagnostic facilities and inpatient facilities in a safe and caring environment instils confidence and promotes healing. Paediatric Department provides a full range of tertiary pediatric care, health promotion and prevention programs for children and adolescents. The medical staff has responded to the changing needs of children requiring inpatient care by developing need-based clinical services.
As a team, we are committed to provide care and services that are guided by the needs of families and are perceived as flexible, accessible, responsive and sensitive. Therefore, we develop systems that enable staff to respond to family preferences and priorities in a timely and creative manner.
We believe that care should be provided by an identifiable health care team that includes families as an integral part of developing a plan and caring for their children. The family-professional partnership is based on mutual respect for the understanding that each brings to the situation.
We strive to provide coordinated care and linkages between our services and the family’s community, including schools, local physicians, services and agencies.
