Dialysis Center for Financially Affected
From 1st February 2009 we have started the Dialysis Center especially to help the financially affected & underprivileged patients patients suffering from kidney failure.
This disease snatches the lives of thousands every year. Kidney failure patients are required to undergo dialysis activity twice or thrice a weeek, i.e 8 to 12 times a month. Private hospitals are charging 1200/- to 2500/-
per dialysis session which is not affordable to patients even if the earning is 20,000 rs to 25,000rs per month.
In private hospitals besides dialysis charges, the patients has to bear charges related to dialiser, tubing, hypotherene injections, pathology charges and various other charges which unfortunately they are required to pay.
We are proud to announce that we are doing the dialysis session only for the financially affected people and not for financially sound patients. Hence from the inception of the center ,we are charging 200rs per dialysis session and other requirements are available at cost price only.
We don't believe in giving services free as we strongly feel that one should realize the value of money and life.
Hence we charge a negligible fees of 200rs per dialysis cycle.
Shocking Facts - Waiting List for Dialysis
Initially our club started Saras Dialysis Center with three machines. Within the period of seven days the waiting list had gone up-to 383 Patients!. Hence within the span of 3 years we were forced to add two more machines but waiting list was increasing day by day and had gone to 410 within short time. Now Saras Dialysis Center is the having most moderated 10 machines but waiting list is still there.

All 10 machines are of Fresenius Company having model no S-4008 each worth 6,00,000/- plus. We have installed 15,000 lt capacity RO Plant and center is fully air-conditioned with T.V and audio facility for patients. Each Dialysis require four hours.
