Paediatrics

At BMH, we provide specialised medical care to infants, children and adolescents ageing from birth to 18 years old. The Department of Paediatrics was one of the first departments to be started in the year 1987 along with the departments of General Medicine and Obstetrics & Gynaecology. Distinguished as ‘Baby Friendly Hospital in Malabar’ since 1993, the Department of Paediatrics offers the best child care. The department provides comprehensive care starting from preventive care to guidance for life skills for infants and children. While offering services to the children with various medical conditions, we take a multi‐disciplinary approach assisted by a team of paediatricians, paediatric surgeons, paediatric nurses, nutritionists and other subspecialty consultants. Commonly seen health problems in children such as infections, malignancies, organic diseases and dysfunctions, genetic defects etc. are treated by the medical specialists at the centre.
