For families with critically or chronically ill Newborns and children

Hygeiaİ is now bringing its technology and databases to newborn special care units, pediatric intensive care units, community programs and schools at national and international hospitals, organizations and institutions such as Yale-New Haven Hospital and the Ronald McDonald Foundation. Read about these first two of hopefully many institutions to implement this program.   If your child is now hospitalized or has a chronic disease or disorder,   please consider participating in this area of Hygeia.
