No pediatric illness is a challenge for us. However some frontiers have to be reached. We need to expand our pediatric sub specialities services to include Bone Marrow Transplantation, Organ Transplantation etc.
The future is bright, based on an old dream and with the friendship and trust of those who believe in this dream, we will grow.
