Paediatrics and Neonatology
"Babies are such nice ways to start people". - Don Herold
Children should be our focus... Children are our most precious assets and our investments for the future of this planet...and in today's modernized and highly competitive world where everyone strives for excellence whether global, national or in a regional perspective, they are our future citizens. We at The Santosh Hospital realize and understand that healthy children will make healthy citizens, essential in achieving the dream of making India a developed nation as envisioned by Nehru... As a health care provider group in this part of the world, we are aware of our immense responsibility and commitment to the improvement in the health and well-being of our children.
With almost a third of our country's population comprising children, there are very few hospitals catering to their needs in this region of India. Private sector corporate hospitals in this region have never given enough importance to the child and have deliberately pushed Pediatrics to a corner in their vast spaces and and always treated the child as a 'miniature adult'.
While public sector centers for women and children thrive with meagre resources and poor infrastructure, often placing children and infants at serious risk due lack of beds and space, the country's infant mortality rates and other indices of pediatric health remain among the high!!!
We at THE Santosh Hospital have recognized the urgent need of a specialized pediatric unit for children, and created the finest advanced center of health for them in this part of India. We at The Santosh Hospital are trying to make a modest step in establishing Pediatrics as a specialized field of medicine not only amongst the medical fraternity, but in our society as well.
The Santosh Hospital (TMH) - a unit of Durgapur Medical Trust Pvt Ltd are dedicated to providing both prevention and cure of baby and child health care. The emphasis is on teamwork to ensure optimum care. TMH has believed in team work and has shown that we can deliver high standard care with excellent outcome through team work.

The hospital's clinical staffs include strong team of highly qualified and experienced Consultants, dynamic team of residents and fellows, well trained nurses and paramedical personnel, and highly motivated team of full- and part-time employees.
We have 10 beds exclusively for general paediatrics and paediatric surgical speciality. The paediatric complex also houses a 10-bedded NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) and PICU (Paediatric Intensive Care Unit). The hospital has round-the-clock Emergency department and in-house Paediatricians who care for the children. At the Santosh Hospital we have conducted paediatric and neonatal surgeries including corrective congenital cardiac defects, neurosurgeries, plastic surgeries, urological surgeries and general surgeries. We have managed to save premiees of even 750 grams. For the children staying in the hospital, there are child-friendly conveniences such as Play Area, books and cartoons, and Story-telling-program.

In The Santosh Hospital (which stands for Passionate Pursuit of Excellence), there is a passion for excellence and finesse and an almost obsessive desire to provide the safest space for the child to recover from illness in the most evidence based manner.
