Rela’s advanced infrastructure and technology allows our neonatologists to be as efficient as possible in treating our patients. Computers in the NICU are linked to computers in the laboratories and radiology. This system enables the results: blood tests, x-rays, ultrasounds, and other imagery to be available to NICU doctors and staff quickly. We are on par with global standards for infrastructure and technology, creating a niche for ourselves in the neonatology field, especially in Chennai.
