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.

Usually, CKD patients need dialysis twice or thrice a week,” he said.

The unit has been established by SDMC under the public-private mode in collaboration with Nipro(Japan) and was inaugurated by MP Parvesh Sahib Singh on Saturday on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti in the presence of SDMC Commissioner Gyanesh Bharti, additional commissioner Randhir Sahay.

A similar facility was recently started at Purnima Sethi hospital in Kalkaji.
