Pyinmana Sangha Hospital could provide kidney dialysis to 90 patients more than 500 times in June. Of them, it tried to help 37 poor patients receive free treatment with the help of public contribution, said the hospital’s medical superintendent Dr Than Min Htut.
Depending on the levels of the disease, the time of kidney dialysis is different; some need eight times a month, and some need six times a month, he wrote on his Facebook page.
Each dialysis costs K55,000, so six times the cost of K330,000 and eight times the cost of K440,000.
“Pyinmana Sangha Hospital’s renal department could provide kidney dialysis to 90 patients 535 times in June. Of 90 patients, we tried to give free dialysis to 37 who had financial difficulty with the help of public donations,” he said.
The cost of each dialysis is K55,000, so long-term treatment makes all patients have financial difficulty.
“That’s why I always tell donors to help kidney patients every time they ask me what donation they should do. In May 2024, we could help 36 patients access free kidney dialysis with a public donation worth more than K14.3 million,” he said. — MT/ZS/ED
