Pediatrics departments of Acıbadem Hospitals Group are organized to provide examinations, treatments and protective health care services for children and young adolescents aged 0-16 years, at all our polyclinics, centers and hospitals.
One of the main objectives of our Pediatrics departments is to help raise awareness on the importance breastfeeding for the growth and development of infants. Furthermore, all newborns at our departments are screened for phenylketonuria and hypothyroidism, with a few drops of blood taken from their heel.
Physical, social and psychological development of infants is evaluated at our hospitals, and they are vaccinated as per guidelines of the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization.
Our units also implement programs to inform parents about chronic childhood diseases.
