Established in 1982, the Department of Paediatrics at Shalamar Hospital delivers high-quality healthcare to children from birth to adolescence in a supportive and inclusive environment.
The department provides comprehensive consultation and care in our paediatric wards, neonatal nursery, intensive care unit, and vaccination centre. Our Well Baby Clinic aims to support growth development in children by keeping checks on weight, height and vaccinations as well as offering parents counsel on breastfeeding, weaning and various other aspects of their child’s health. Staffed with specially trained paediatric specialists, we also have a dedicated emergency room which accommodates over 200 children every day.
Our research portfolio has grown tremendously over the past several years. The department launched a metabolic disorder screening programme in collaboration with Zahra Beau (ZB) Foundation. In 2017, the department also partnered with the National TB Control Centre to spearhead a national screening program for paediatric tuberculosis.
We are committed to improving the physical and emotional development of children as we offer personalised care in an ethical, supportive and child-friendly atmosphere.
