ICU is also ready to take up any emergency related to children. 5 faculty and 15 seniors have been appointed to handle the children's OPD and emergency.

Problems such as Jaundice and Dengue have become very common and now Dwarka residents can bring their children for treatment anytime as we have complete facilities."
The emergency for children is located on the first floor with OPD registration and the OPD ward for surgery. For skin and eyes, the OPD wards are located on the second floor and the rest are on the third floor.
