Low-cost dialysis centre inaugurated in Borivali, Mumbai

Hundreds of patients in suburban Mumbai having kidney conditions will not have to travel long distances for treatment as a hemodialysis center has been inaugurated at Mangal Murti Hospital in Borivali. Along with the center, an intensive cardiac care unit and emergency facility will also be available. These were inaugurated by Dr. Yogesh Dube and Dr. Suchit Mahale. The center, initiated by The Renal Project (TRP), will provide dialysis at affordable rates as compared to private hospital rates. The project aims at helping the economically backward class to get access to the treatment without having to burn a hole in their pockets. Here, patients will be able to get their dialysis done at Rs. 1,250, whereas the same treatment in private hospitals costs around Rs. 2,000 to Rs. 2,500. The inauguration is the first step towards building a chain of dialysis centers exactly where it is needed so that ailing and aging patients do not have to travel long distances for treatment, said Shashank Moddhia, Founder, The Renal Project. The initiative aims at reaching out to the remotest areas and helping people and communities who cannot afford high private hospital rates and also aims at opening microdialysis centers on the outskirts of Tier I and Tier-II cities. The motive is not profit but service because that is what the sector demands and is all about. We plan to open around 100 such centers in small pockets of districts such as Palghar, Dahanu, Buldhana, Canacona (in Goa) among others across the country. The goal is to reach maximum number of people in need with the treatment in minimum rates, Moddhia added.
