“A child’s smile is one of life’s greatest blessings”
This goal is what we strive to achieve from every child that walks through the doors of our paediatric unit.We are committed to easing the apprehensions of children and their parents while providing the best care and support essential to make their visit as comfortable as possible.

The NICU provides comprehensive level 3 care for critically ill newborns, both term and premature infants. Our Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides very specialist services for the most vulnerable pre-term and term newborn infrants who need complex, intensive medical care.

The PICU is a multidisciplinary unit that provides integrated care for infants and children who become critically ill or injured. Our unit has highly skilled staff with state of art equipment and the expertise necessary to deliver the care needed for children in the unit.
