Centres of Excellence

Paediatric & Newborn Care

 

Ethekwini Hospital’s paediatric facility is an intimate 14 bedded ward designed to create a welcoming and friendly environment for our younger patients. Staff are highly trained paediatric nurses who provide the special level of care that babies and children require. The ward can accommodate newborns, babies and children up to early adolescent years. Isolation wards are available for childrens protection. In addition, the hospital has paediatric intensive care facilities for premature and ill newborns as well as for older children.

 

The décor, play areas and furnishings are designed to create a warm and comforting atmosphere. Our carers are expert at reassuring children and distracting them while they undergo treatment or investigation. We encourage parents to spend as much time as possible with their children, particularly nursing mothers. Room-in facilities for parents are available for this purpose. Ethekwini Hospital utilises the latest technology for the care and treatment of our paediatric patients. Equipment in the wards and ICU’s is world class and our digital hospital allows doctors in their rooms (or at home) to view test results moments after they have been performed. This allows for rapid treatment decisions; a critical component of effective paediatric care.

 

Sub specialities include:

 

• Paediatric neurology
• Paediatric cardiology
• Paediatric surgery
