Intensive care for a child is very different compared to care for an adult. From the diagnosis to the treatment, a child needs special and customised care. A child is kept under the supervision of a critical care specialist or intensivist trained in pediatric care.
The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Sitaram Bhartia has been established with an aim to provide care for sick children between 1 month old infants to 15 year old adolescents for critical needs or emergencies.
We believe in providing 1:1 nursing care with every effort to intensively monitor their progress while ensuring their comfort and well-being.
Our critical care specialists are available round the clock to provide the care you can trust™

At Sitaram Bhartia, our aim is to provide an ethical care with minimalized medical intervention and hence, the Pediatrics team of SBISR follows a baby- centric approach. We provide your child standardised care so that the errors and risk factors( if any) are eliminated.
Our Pediatricians strictly follow the system of Team Huddles that includes different case meetings where the status of your child is discussed with other doctors and specialists, their input is recorded and your child gets the best treatment according to his condition.
Due respect is given to the ‘right to seek a second opinion’. In case of any confusions, you can always seek a second opinion.
We understand a child’s mental state when he is under treatment. The treatment might be minor yet the child needs support. Therefore, our team comprises of child-specific trained nurses in the pediatric department. They are specialised to deal with children keeping in mind the sensitivity and delicacy.
A child, at all times needs his mother. A mother’s presence gives hope to the child and hence, the child feels safe. Our doctors understand that and hence, they focus on minimizing the chances of separation of the baby and the mother.
In the case of an emergency where you’re most worried about your child’s health, there’s also a factor of cost that adds up to that. We provide a hassle-free billing support to ease up your critical times.
A TPA desk has been set up to resolve all your queries. The appointed person at the TPA desk will explain to you all the corporate tie-ups we provide and the terms and conditions for that.
From your child’s treatment to the expenses, we’ve got it covered for you!
