GOOD NEWS FOR DIALYSIS PATIENTS. The Catanduanes Doctor’s Hospital, Inc. (CDHI) at Valencia, Virac inaugurated its Renal Dialysis Center recently to serve islanders with serious kidney ailments. The center, which can accommodate 6 patients at a time, is now open to accept clients.

Catandunganons suffering from kidney failure or end-stage renal disease may now avail of dialysis treatment services of the Catanduanes Doctors Hospital Incorporated (CDHI).

A week after the Department of Health (DOH) approved its License to Operate, the CDHI has inaugurated its state-of-the-art Renal Dialysis Center.

CDHI chief executive officer Raymond Taopa said that the hospital decided to fast-track the opening and operation of the dialysis center so that they can immediately provide the services to Catandunganons in need.

“Dai na ninda kaipo na maglarga sa Tabaco o sa Manila, ta ikan na nin mas halani buda quality service pa,” Taopa added.

CDHI has allocated 10 dialysis machines but at present there are six dialysis machines available to the public. Taopa assured that given the circumstances where the demand increases, the hospital has four more spare machines to serve the public.

The CDHI CEO further said that each machine costs over P1 million and is made by Fresenius Medical Care, which is considered as the world’s largest provider of dialysis services and dialysis products such as haemodialysis machines, dialysers and related disposable products.

“The Renal Dialysis Center complements the services of other hospitals and is not competing for clients”, Taopa said.

Casting aside the notion that their services are costly, the hospital further assured the public that indigent patients who are under Philhealth can avail the services for free.

The hospital is eyeing to provide Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) services, a hotel and a medical school in the near future.
