Welcome to parenthood!
Children have their ups and downs. When they are uncomfortable, very often young children are not able to verbalise their thoughts, feeling and fear. We understand the healing and care for each child is unique. Our experienced paediatric medical specialists interact with the children personally and work with parents to provide the best care in a safe and comforting environment.
