The department is equipped with all facilities and handled with care. All of our departments have well-integrated services.

The first few months of a baby's life are crucial when they have health complications. At our multispeciality hospital, there is a Newborn Intensive Care Unit called the NICU. Our nicu department has a state-of-the-art unit dedicated to the care of premature and critically ill babies.

Assuring your baby receives the best care possible is our top priority at Choithram Hospital.

We at Choithram Hospital strive to provide the highest standard of care to you and your baby. Keeping your baby safe is our top priority.

A baby's survival depends on the mother's functions before birth. The body needs these functions to breathe, eat, eliminate waste, and protect itself from disease. It is necessary for the body systems of a newborn to change once it leaves the womb. Here are some examples:

  • It is necessary to breathe air through the lungs.
  • Circulation changes in the heart and lungs.
  • Food must be processed and waste must be excreted by the digestive system.
  • To balance fluids and chemicals in the body and excrete waste, the kidneys must begin working.
  • The immune system and liver must work independently.

The body systems of your baby must work together in a new way. A baby may have difficulty transitioning outside the womb in some cases. Birth defects, preterm birth, and difficult births can make these changes more challenging. But we are here with an experienced team and a lot of special care to help newborn babies.
