Fortis Hospital, Vasant Kunj (FHVK), New Delhi in collaboration with Fresenius Medical Care India recently inaugurated a dialysis centre by Dr Ashutosh Raghuvanshi, MD & CEO, Fortis Healthcare (FHL); in presence of Punit Kohli, Managing Director, Fresenius Medical Care India, Mahipal Bhanot, Zonal Director, FHL, Dr Rajeev Nayyar, Facility Director, FHVK, and Dr Sanjeev Gulati, Director & HOD, Dept of Nephrology at FHVK. The new dialysis centre will provide 16 dialysis stations offering advanced dialysis therapies to help meet the growing demand for treatment of renal patients.
Bhanot said, “Fortis Healthcare is committed to providing quality access to dialysis patients, enabling chronic kidney disease to lead more active and fulfilling lives. Owing to the rising number of kidney patients every year, it has become the need of the hour to come up with dedicated and advanced dialysis centres. This not only helps in maximising the reach of the treatment among patients but also makes it easy for them to get access to timely treatment at a reasonable cost and without having to travel long distance.”
Kohli said, “At Fresenius Medical Care, we are dedicated to deliver high-quality kidney care that improve the quality of life of every patient, every day. This new centre provides patients with advanced technology, patient comfort and safety as well as highly-qualified medical staff. Our trained, experienced and caring staff always strive to ensure that our patients are provided with outstanding care while making dialysis treatment as comfortable as possible. We acknowledge the importance of developing long-term partnership with patients and healthcare professionals alike and we are pleased to be collaborating with Fortis Healthcare for the fourth running unit.”
Nayyar said, “The hospital-based centre will offer a range of advanced dialysis options including high-flux haemodialysis and online haemodiafiltration (HDF). Online HDF allows better removal of waste products from the blood, which may contribute to improved survival for patients compared with those receiving standard haemodialysis. As part of the company’s holistic approach to patient care, the centre will offer holiday dialysis, allowing patients travelling from other regions or from overseas to receive uninterrupted treatment.”
