Neonatology

Whether you anticipated your child’s stay in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) or it was unexpected, having a newborn with urgent medical needs can be a stressful and overwhelming experience for any parent. At Kharghar Medicity, we strive to provide the best care for your baby while also delivering well-rounded support to you and your growing family.

Our specialists will consult with you to ensure that you are prepared and informed about every decision you make for your baby’s health.We are leading the way with a focused neurocritical care initiative aimed at safeguarding infant brain health.
