NICE Institute for the Newborn – South East Asia’s largest and exclusive neonatal facility is to launch its comprehensive health care facility for children up to 18 years of age. The Hon’ble Chief Minister Sri K. Rosaiah will inaugurate this pediatric facility on the special occasion of Children’s Day, 14th November 2009 at 12:30 PM.
Started as a Public Private Partnership model almost a year ago, NICE Hospital for Babies has been able to create a niche for itself in the health care domain. In a short span of time, we have been able to make our presence felt with out international quality, evidence based practice guidelines, thus delivering ethical high end, clinical services for those in need for advanced medical care, with excellent outcomes, said Dr. M. Padmanabh Reddy, Director, NICE Institute.
In order to broaden our horizon to include older infants and children, we are adding the Pediatric Division which is going to provide the highest quality pediatric medical and surgical services. 30% of the world’s children’s deaths happen in our country. Most of these deaths are due to common treatable conditions such as pneumonia, acute gastroenteritis, malaria, tuberculosis, meningitis and the more recent ones like dengue fevers, coupled with the chronic problem of malnutrition, which is present in more than 1/3rd of our country’s children, said Dr. M. Padmanabh Reddy.
The NICE Hospital for Children is an epitome of technological excellence. The state of art equipment like High Frequency Oscillators, Nitric Oxide delivery system, Total Parental Nutrition, Pneumatic Chute, Laminar Flow system in the intensive care and Operating Theatre areas greatly enhance the quality of service and clinical outcomes.
A full fledged team of neonatalogists and pediatric intensivists, supported by sub speciality services, cardiologists, neurologists, gastroenterologiests, radiologists, pulmonologists, and pediatric surgeons etc, will deliver the highest quality care to the sick children in need.
Health care costs in our country are not in the reach of the majority of the population. Delivering highest quality care with excellent clinical outcomes, at a cost which is in reach of most of the population, is what the NICE Hospital for Children is aiming to deliver, said, The Director, NICE Hospital for Children.
This Hospital is going to be a training and research facility, along with the clinical care. It has the support of around 50 high end pediatricians and neonatalogists and allied specialists across the world, pledging their time and expertise to the Hospital.
Dr. M. Padmanabh Reddy said that the idea is to create an international level institute for children in the city of Hyderabad, wherein quality clinical care services are provided following the best of standards for care and still be in the reach of the common man, and also training future generation professionals and pioneering research in the allied fields, which is the need of the hour.
