Pusat Dialisis Taiping Parit Buntar is now Fresenius Kidney Care’s largest private dialysis centre in Malaysia
Fresenius Medical Care, the world’s largest provider of dialysis products and services, has announced the expansion and renovation of its Pusat Dialisis Taiping (PDT) Parit Buntar Fresenius Kidney Care dialysis centre. The expanded facility provides 29 dialysis stations that deliver life-saving dialysis treatment and is able to care for up to 174 patients, making it the company’s largest dialysis centre in Malaysia.
The health and safety of our patients, colleagues and partners are the top priority for Fresenius Medical Care. As a health care provider, we are aware of the responsibility that we have – in general, but especially in times we are currently facing. We take this very seriously and are closely monitoring the situation to ensure that our practices are sufficient. As we take care of some of health care’s most vulnerable patients, we are keeping a close eye on this situation. We have reinforced the infection control practices that are already in place in order to protect our patients. We are in close contact with the local authorities and follow their guidance. Furthermore, we have created task forces to review our response as the situation develops.
Their hands most likely delivered you and your own children into the world. They play a critical role in health promotion and disease prevention. They are the ears, eyes and hands of entire medical teams, and often the vital communication link with a patient's family and friends. These are the highly-skilled health professionals who coordinate and deliver care with compassion at any stage of life — and often when we are at our most vulnerable.
Fresenius Medical Care, the world's leading provider of products and services for individuals with renal diseases, expanded its regional manufacturing plant in Bandar Enstek, Malaysia. Dato' Seri Dr. Chen Chaw Min, Secretary General of the Malaysian Ministry of Health graced the opening ceremony.
To mark World Kidney Day on 9th March 2017, Fresenius Medical Care launched a brand new Asia-Pacific-wide Corporate Social Responsibility initiative through a series of public awareness events reaching 6600 children, parents and carers — as well as media, key renal health partners and government.
