Government Medical College, Anantnag, J&K.

The Department of Pediatrics is located in M&CCH – Associated Hospital to GMC Anantnag, in a space crunch. The department with its expert clinicians in various Pediatric subspecialties, enables it to care for children who need specialized care beyond the capability of a community hospital. The breadth and depth of our experience give us the ability to treat children suffering from many acute or chronic illness.

Our range of services includes treating premature infants (sometimes smaller than a pound), full-term new-borns, toddlers, children, and adolescents. We additionally offer emergency care in a specialized SNCU, Out-patient and In-patient services, Lab services, patient education/ Counselling and other services.

Our approximate daily OPD is 600-800 patients and 200-250 during night hours. We have Level 1 and Level 2 care with us, having general Pediatrics, HDU, NRC and SNCU. We have 12 open care warmers, 5 LED phototherapy and 10 oxygen concentrators. Triage is being run in the OPD along with daily immunisation clinic. There is one single room for six faculty members, 03 senior residents, 04 junior residents and 10 Medical officers. Space is therefore the major constraint for us. To improve we can use ventilators, only after space is provided with central oxygen and suction.
