Neonatology is a subspecialty in paediatric care that deals with the medical care for the new-born infants, especially the sick, premature new-borns and babies with low birth weight than required, or with any infections, heart problems or congenital defects. This is a hospital-based specialty and is usually practiced in neonatal intensive care units.

Fathima hospitalNeonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) 

We follow a holistic approach to treatment with our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. 

At Fathima hospital, the Division of Neonatal Care aims to provide optimum state-of-the-art care for critically ill and recovering neonates and infants. The highly qualified team of neonatologists with neonatal trained nurses who specialises in the care of the newborn at Fathima Hospital offers high-intensity neonatal care 24/7.


There is a step-down Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) to take care of preterm babies, who are feeding and growing rapidly but need monitoring until they are fit for discharge.

At Fathima hospital, the Department of Neonatology has neonatologists, paediatricians and nurses trained in new-born care. We also have respiratory therapists who manage respiratory equipment in the NICU, providing breathing treatments, drawing and analysing blood gasses, and participating in transport and codes.


We also offer advanced neonatal screening programmes such as genetic disorders screening, a retinal screening, OAE & BERA hearing screening, hip screening, and heart screening.

We recommend parents to participate during medical rounds and engage in skin-to-skin contact, which has been shown to have a positive impact on an infant’s neurologic and physical health.
