Mumbai, May 17 2021 – NephroPlus, India’s largest dialysis care network and a trailblazer in redefining dialysis care in the country, is proud to announce its continued commitment by 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 specialized 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 over 512 patients and is currently providing its services to over 50 COVID-19 patients in each centre daily.
Speaking about this, Mr. Vikram Vuppala, Founder and CEO of NephroPlus said, “NephroPlus has always been at the forefront when it comes to helping our guests with quality dialysis care. 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). I am extremely happy to cater to the needs of people undergoing dialysis and help them battle this situation with ease.”
