New Delhi: SDMC Standing Committee on Thursday gave its nod for providing dialysis procedure at CGHS rates or even lower in six health centers under the jurisdiction of SDMC. It also decided to issue an RFP to invite interested NGOs, trusts, corporate hospitals, organizations to provide dialysis services to the chronic renal failure patients who require dialysis two or three times a week. The Corporation has selected six centers - PSMS hospital Kalkaji, PHC Fateh Pur Beri, PHC Mehrauli, Polyclinic Ghuman Hera and Maharaja Agrasain Polyclinic Uttam Nagar.
"No government can have unending resources to provide free quality healthcare to all citizens. Therefore, SDMC is inviting NGOs, trusts etc to set up dialysis clinic at selected centres where the facility will be extended at a very reasonable rate. The selected NGOs, etc will establish and run dialysis clinic at six selected health centers, initially for a period of five years," said Shikha Rai, Chairman, SDMC Standing Committee.
"SDMC decided to provide this procedure at CGHS Delhi rates or even less than that. The six centers selected by the SDMC will provide quality service of dialysis and facilitate poor patients to get the procedure done at the earliest. The government hospitals situated/located at strategic locations are always found overcrowded and there are long queues of patients who are to undergo dialysis in nearby areas," she added.
