Six dialysis centers in Al Dhafra region upgraded to serve over 80 patients

Six dialysis centers in the Al Dhafra region have been upgraded with the latest medical equipment and professionally trained medical staff. The centers currently follow the latest international medical and quality standards applied within Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA).


There has been an increase in the number of dialysis cases, and existing centers have been expanded to accommodate more kidney failure patients. The services are now readily available in all cities within the Al Dhafra region.


The plans to develop and modernize the dialysis centers in the Al Dhafra region included opening a new center in the city of Liwa, which serves not only the residents and its neighboring areas but also visitors to Mureb Hill and those who attend the different Liwa festivals throughout the year.


Additionally, the dialysis unit at Mirfa Hospital has also been modernized to ensure the highest level of service, meeting the goals set by SEHA.


In total, six specialized kidney centers are now providing the highest level of excellence and efficiency to serve the residents of Madinat Zayed, Ghayathi, Sila, Mirfa, and the Delma and Liwa Islands.


Dr. Salah El-Din Khalil Issa, a Specialist, said that 80 patients with chronic renal failure require repeated hemodialysis in the Al Dhafra region, in addition to visitors. He indicated that such critical cases and those of acute renal failure are treated at the intensive care unit in Madinat Zayed Hospital, which is equipped to provide a special type of hemodialysis suitable for such conditions.


The dialysis center at Madinat Zayed Hospital is the only center in the Al Dhafra region equipped to treat acute and critical kidney cases and has the latest medical equipment to provide an outstanding level of care.


This has enabled patients to receive effective treatment coupled with continuous and thorough follow-up care by the qualified SEHA medical staff, selected with great care and in accordance with the highest international standards. This has ensured the safety of the patients and provided them with the best levels of service and medical care.


Dr. Salah Al-Din pointed out that the dialysis centers now have sufficient devices to serve more than double the existing number of cases and deal with various pathological cases. Al Dhafra Hospitals also have clinics specializing in kidney diseases and renal failure that help treat patients and prevent their chances of developing kidney failure.


He further stressed that the dialysis centers in the Al Dhafra region are characterized by high efficiency of medical and therapeutic cadres and the availability of the latest equipment.


Moreover, these centers successfully monitored four pregnancies for chronic dialysis patients – three of whom had a natural birth, which is a rare thing and indicates the efficiency of the dialysis.
