At the Emergency Department, we care for children aged under 18 years. Sick children are stabilized in the Emergency room and then shifted to the appropriate wards. The emergency room is well equipped with monitors, medication and trained personnel who are available round-the-clock.
Babies less than 1 month may be referred to neonatal unit (NICU) which is situated in third floor. Patients above 18 years may be refused to be seen as this is a children’s hospital.

SALIENT FEATURES OF RENOVATED SIXTH FLOOR
Pediatric surgical services
As part of Redesigning, refurbishing all the hospital floors, the fourth floor- which is the surgical ward has been completed and was opened on 4th June 2015. The child friendly 4th floor was inaugurated by His Holiness Sri Jayendra Saraswathi & Our beloved chairman Mr.A.C.Muthiah on 4th June 2015.
The ward is sparkling new with more single rooms with en-suite bathrooms pleasingly and aesthetically designed to the satisfaction of the families of surgical patients. We are sure these changes will make the hospital stay during the most difficult times easy and comfortable.
SALIENT FEATURES OF RENOVATED FOURTH FLOOR
It is well recognized that minimally invasive or laparoscopic surgery (“keyhole surgery”) has a significant note to play in children with surgical problems. The Department of Pediatric Surgery started performing laparoscopic procedures many years ago. Today most procedures like appendicectomy, cholecystectomy and urological procedures like orchidopexy and Mullerian remnant excision as well as tumor surgery are all done laparoscopically. Also video assisted thoracoscopy is used to deal with children who need decortication of the lung, diaphragmatic hernia etc. Minimally invasive surgery has reduced the morbidity and duration of hospital stay significantly in our patients.
