The Department of Pediatrics and Neonatology at the Academic Hospital St. Elisabethen Lörrach offers young patients the full range of medical services, and also takes care of the health and proper development of infants and newborns. The department diagnoses and treats children under the age of 18 years. The specialists in neonatology cooperate closely with obstetricians from the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, forming the Level I Perinatal Center (the highest standard of university-level perinatal medicine). The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Hubert Fahnenstich.

The scope of tasks for the department's pediatricians includes the treatment of diseases of the lungs, nervous system, psychoemotional disorders combined with somatic complaints and hormonal diseases (for example, diabetes mellitus) in childhood.
