The Apollo Hospitals Group launched the first standalone Dialysis Centre in Public Private Partnership with Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS).

At present, of the 1.5 lakh new patients who suffer from end-stage renal failure annually, only 3,500 get kidney transplants and 6,000 undergo dialysis.

After realising the demand for this service which is only going to rise in future, CGHS has decided to step into the standalone model for dialysis as a pilot.

Present on the occasion were Secretary (Health) Govt. of India, Director General Health Services, Govt. Of India and Dr. Prathap C Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals Group.

The “CGHS Apollo Dialysis Centre” is a pilot project in collaboration with Alliance Medicorp (India) Limited (AML), Chennai, a Joint Venture company of Apollo Health and Lifestyle Ltd. (AHLL) which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Limited (AHEL).
