NephroPlus is scaling up its operations of providing dialysis to COVID positive patients across 120+ centres in 90 cities. Through this initiative, NephroPlus aims to help dialysis patients with COVID-19, to obtain timely dialysis care across the centres through in-hospital dialysis sessions or its specialised service offerings ‘Dialysis on Wheel’ (DOW) and ‘Dialysis on Call’ (DOC).
The service is fully functional across all the units as the brand has created dedicated facilities to provide dialysis service to COVID positive patients, either in isolation at the OPD units or in the IP/ICUs. Apart from this, NephroPlus has made special provisions to offer dialysis services at the OPD units of the hospitals during the night hours (3rd & 4th shift).
To ensure that quality does not get hampered, the company has additionally hired skilled technicians across all its centres to cater to the increasing number of COVID-positive patients who need dialysis care. As per records, over the last one and a half month, NephroPlus has provided dialysis to 512 patients and is currently providing its services to over 50 COVID-19 patients across centres daily.
Speaking about this, Vikram Vuppala, Founder and CEO, NephroPlus said, “During these tough times, as a leading dialysis provider in the country, we take responsibility to provide all dialysis patients with quality care and ensure they receive timely services, irrespective of the location (at home or in the hospital).”
Adding to this, Kamal D Shah, Co-Founder & Director of Guest Services, NephroPlus says, “Providing access to chronic kidney patients over 120+ locations has allowed us to serve so many of our guests in fully converted COVID facilities. Keeping in mind the growing number of COVID-19 people in India who need dialysis service, we firmly decided to launch these dedicated dialysis treatment centres. We are extremely happy to expand our service in the country, as it allows us to reach out to more and more patients in India.”
