The Department of Paediatrics at SSPH & PGI was started in December 2015 to strengthen the basic pillars of child health like growth, development and immunization and do constant monitoring for detection of deviations at earliest stage when corrective measures can be instituted to ensure optimal outcomes. The scope of Paediatric Medicine services extend from specialized clinical services to overall wellbeing of children and adolescents up to 19 years of age.
