We have set up a charitable Dialysis centre at Secunderabad in the year 2016 to serve the needy of the society which provided a session of Dialysis treatment at just Rs.300/- against a private hospital charging Rs.3,500/- for the same, while keeping at par with them on all quality parameters. We have conducted 10000 dialysis in the last year, Som informed.
We have also upgraded our existing blood bank in the year 2017 with the state of art equipment to support the cause of treatment for Thalassemia Children. This facility will enable us to supply free blood to the children suffering from this rare blood disorder.
