Dear Medical Professional
We are a Level III B (National Neonatology Forum accredited ) Neonatal intensive care unit. The scope and expertise of our unit is to provide a level of care and services with advanced supports like high frequency ventilation and inhaled Nitric oxide therapy, peritoneal dialysis, parenteral nutrition etc.. for sick neonates. This includes years of experience in the care of neonates at thresholds of viability (24-25 weeks gestation). We are strongly committed to interdisciplinary involvement with Perinatology, High risk obstetrics, Pediatric Surgery, Laryngology, Retinal specialists, Pediatric Cardiology, Pediatric neurology, Pediatric Endocrinology.
Early parent participation in decision making as well as daily care processes is the crux of our unit. The dedicated Follow up services protocol- “Blue book” (which is now being practised in many other units) has been in place with a structured protocol for several years.
We believe that relentless improvement comes with academic endeavours and continuing education. Hence the commitment to teaching and training. We have been running the superspecialty DNB Neonatology program and Fellowships in Neonatology since 2008. Academic work includes involvement in clinical investigative research with a focus on translating science into better ways to deliver care and improve outcomes.
Our mission includes striving to quality improvement – not just in patient care, but also satisfaction of parents, staff and fellows. This includes extensive contributions to clinical research, national and international neonatal practice guidelines.
