The Kuwait Hospital Difference

Backed by our preventative healthcare philosophy, our specialists monitor the health of expecting mothers throughout their trimesters to particularly track high risk factors such as diabetes, multiple pregnancies, high blood pressure and pre-eclampsia, premature rupture of amniotic sac, bleeding, infant diagnosed with congenital anomalies etc  

Our NICU is fitted with state-of-the-art equipment for babies who need compassionate care of all levels including specialized baby cots, intensive incubators, and isolation units. Our NICU is monitored 24/7 by highly trained staff. Although we plan and hope for the best possible outcome for every birth, we also include NICU in all childbirth packages as a preparatory measure in case the need may arise.
