About Paediatric Department
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.
Conditions We Treat
Procedures and Treatments
My daughter was diagnosed with kidney stones and eventually had surgery due to the stone being lodged and unable to pass. I cannot explain enough how pleased my daughter and I were with the excellent care, attention, and compassion that we received during her stay. My daughter was in excruciating pain; they immediately gave her medicine to relieve the pain and any time she rang the bell for assistance, the nurses were at the door before you knew it. We will not go to any other hospital, but Shalamar Hospital. The improvement is beyond belief! We wanted you to know how very happy and comfortable your hospital made us feel. My daughter is much better thanks to the staff at Shalamar Hospital. Keep up the excellent service!
