The patient is expected to undergo Dialysis two to three times a week, however, it is an expensive procedure that the underprivileged cannot afford. Our goal is to continually provide better services and to exceed all stakeholders’ expectations. We endeavour to provide services at competitive pricing, and offer programmes and packages to help the underprivileged, in keeping with the hospital’s mission to become the first choice for value and excellence in healthcare.”
