HCM City (VNA) – A high-tech hemodialysis centre was put into operation in Nguyen Tri Phuong Hospital, Ho Chi Minh City on August 12.

With 20 dialysis machines, the centre is expected to provide treatment for 50-60 patients a day.

All equipment, medicines, and the hemodialysis process used in the centre strictly satisfy Japanese standards, bringing the best treatment to patients with chronic kidney disease.

Initially, Japanese experts specialising in hemodialysis and kidney machine operation will work at the centre and concurrently give training to the hospital’s doctors.

Director of the hospital Dr. Vo Duc Chien said his medical establishment was allowed to organise training courses related to nephrology and dialysis for doctors and nurses, and the centre is hoped to serve as a training establishment to international standards in the future.

In 2015-2016, the hospital worked with Japanese experts and the Ho Chi Minh City Hemodialysis Association to open training programmes in nephrology-hemodialysis for doctors and nurses in and outside the city, towards improving the quality of medical examination and treatment services.-VNA
