The Paediatric Centre was specially created with a child’s heart and imagination in mind. Whether a child stays in a general, shared, or premium bed for a night or visits frequently for routine blood transfusions, the doctors and nurses at Mercy Hospital seek their smiles while attending to their health. Important services offered to children range from cleft lip or palate surgery to leukemia and thalassemia treatments. Additionally, child diabetes, obesity, and thyroid clinics are held regularly.
Inspired by young ones with chronic diseases who must spend a lot of their time at the hospital, Mercy Hospital has a vision to construct a “Dream Centre” as a division within the Paediatric Centre. In addition to the colorful and cheerful ambience that the Paediatric Centre provides, the Dream Centre will function as an area for activities and memorable experiences that will bring special joy to recovering young patients.
