After Kalkaji, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation has started a kidney dialysis centre at Tilak Nagar Colony Hospital in West Delhi where the facility is being offered at a subsidised rate.
Dr Rakesh Nath Prasad, the coordinator of the dialysis centre, said while the procedure would cost between Rs 3,500 and Rs 6,000 at a private hospital, it would be offered at Rs 1,400 at the hospital. “Chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients will get the latest dialysis technology, with single-use dialysers and disposable kits, at an affordable price of Rs 1,400. Usually, CKD patients need dialysis twice or thrice a week,” he said.

डायलिसिस के महंगे इलाज से लोगों को काफी राहत मिलेगी। SDMC व निप्रो मेडिकल इंडिया की यह बेहद अच्छी पहल है। #westdelhi pic.twitter.com/2gt8tfvRfl
