Alleviating Pain and Distress of Patients and Families – Palliative Care Center Opens –
The birth of a new life creates great joy and excitement. However, if there is some problem with the mother or the baby inside her, groups with expert knowledge and skills must respond promptly through close team medical care, while applying their respective characteristics.
The Center is focused on Obstetrics and Pediatrics (the Neonatal Group), and has built a close network of various specialized medical departments, including the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment, Trauma and Acute Critical Care Center, Pediatric Surgery, Cardiovascular Surgery, Neurosurgery, Department of Genetic Counseling and Anesthesiology, to protect the lives of both mother and child.
Unnecessary medical intervention is avoided if the mother and child are in good condition, but if there is a risk which threatens a healthy future, the concerted efforts of the Center are applied to its diagnosis and treatment. At the same time, we actively strive for safe, painless childbirth, and hope that the Center will be used not just for high risk and complicated pregnancies, but by all pregnant women in general.
