Our Paediatric Department has three which take care of inpatient and outpatient services. These are the general pediatric unit, neonatal unit and RCH which deals with under five years old children. There are two specialists, one Medical Doctor (MD), five intern doctors and 22 nurses in the department
The department offers hematological, biochemical parasitological services and images like Ultrasound, ECHO and X-rays. We manage all pediatric conditions including heart problems, and where possible referrals for superspecialized services to Muhimbili National Hospital or Ocean Road Hospital at Dar Es Salaam. The department takes care of patients with rare diseases such as sphingolipidosis, who require enzyme replacement therapy.
Thanks to the project “Exemptions for children” we can offer services free of charge for children whose parents cannot afford expenses for treatment.
