Paediatric Hospitalisation and Hospital Paediatrics Unit

The Paediatric Hospitalisation and Hospital Paediatrics Unit was recently created. It represents a considerable evolution in the care of paediatric patients admitted into the Maternity and Children's Hospital, replacing the former General Paediatrics Unit, in order to adapt to current care requirements. 

This Unit plays a very important role in the overall, comprehensive care of paediatric patients. The paediatricians of this unit are responsible for the care of a large majority of acute paediatric illnesses, maintaining a close relationship with the other medical and surgical subspecialities, and aim to become leaders in treating patients who are difficult to diagnose or who have a complex pathology, as part of their care and teaching activities concerning paediatric hospitalism.
