Pediatrics & Neonatology Cardiology

Specialized cardiac care for preemies, newborns and kids

Caring for the heart health of a newborn needs specialized skills, compassionate care, and a highly experienced team. At Kuwait Hospital, our Pediatrics & Neonatology department has a dedicated cardiology unit which focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions and diseases of the heart and related organs from the time of a child’s birth into early years.

We well understand the concerns of parents and keep parents and families informed every step of the way.

We are experienced in providing care for a wide range of conditions including congenital heart defects, holes in the heart, as well as heart surgeries for young children. We work closely with parents to consistently monitor the growth and wellbeing of babies and kids with heart conditions, through follow ups, tests and routine screenings.  

The Kuwait Hospital Difference

Backed by our holistic healthcare philosophy, our doctors work closely with our multi-disciplinary team of gynecologists, obstetricians, counsellors and nutritionists to carve a personalized and customized roadmap for young children.  

Our NICU (Neonatal intensive care unit) utilizes the latest technology to provide the best possible outcomes for our youngest patients. 

We pride ourselves on providing a comfortable, positive and welcoming environment, and we are committed to ensuring that our youngest patients receive the highest level of care and support throughout their stay. 

We house the most advanced technology for diagnosis of cardiac conditions as well as their treatment and minimally invasive surgery.
