New renal unit open at St Vincent's

Last week the Catholic Bishop of Lismore Geoffrey Jarrett officially blessed and opened the new renal dialysis unit at St Vincent’s Private Hospital.

St Vincent’s CEO Bob Walsh said the new unit was built by Fresenius Medical Care, who provides specialist medical services for individuals with chronic kidney failure. It cost $1 million and includes 10 chairs with state-of-the-art nephrology equipment, the latest technological advancements as well as the best in patient comfort and features.

“We are very fortunate to offer medical care from a high quality provider with an excellent reputation and international experience in renal dialysis,” Mr Walsh said. “As the population ages these services are becoming more and more essential to the North Coast, and it is important that people should not have to travel to access specialised renal nursing care.”
