The department of Paediatrics, GIMSR was established in the year 2014 and since then the department has undertaken the dual responsibility of patient care and student teaching. We as a team are committed to provide care for every child in need who visits our hospital.

Being a tertiary care Hospital we are well equipped to deal with neonatal and pediatric emergencies with excellent backup of PICU and NICU services round the clock, thus achieving lowest mortality rates in the Hospital. The department is adequately staffed offers regular newborn care, regular and specialty outpatient clinic services, and inpatient pediatric services up to 16 years of age. Good quality patient care is provided emphasizing on effective communication with both the children and their parents / carers.

Immunization of children forms an important part of our endeavor towards disease prevention in the community. Vaccination clinics are conducted and vaccines are given free of cost, supplied by the DM&HO, Visakhapatnam as per IAP & National Immunization schedule. Other vaccines are given after purchasing in our pharmacy at reasonable price. Community services are provided and health camps are conducted both in urban and rural areas on a regular basis.

The academic activities for the undergraduates are well structured as per the NMC norms and students are exposed to a variety of cases during their clinical postings which boost their knowledge and skills. We teach critical care nursing students (M Sc., NPCC) and conduct regular training sessions for pediatric and neonatal nursing staff to enhance their clinical skills.
