The Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) outfitted its Dialysis Unit with twenty (20) new dialysis reclining chairs as part of its phased improvement works.

The Champion 54 Series Dialysis Recliners were purchased by the Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) at a cost of  $31,707.71. The chairs offer patients durable support, around-the-clock comfort during treatment, and contain key features like stationary arms, fold-away tables, push handles, retractable foot trays and quick release seats.

Minister of Health, Dr. Duane E. Sands this week spoke to the improvements underway in the Dialysis Unit referring to the upgrade as progress and a glimpse of the vision to revamp public healthcare  in the country while offering residents equitable access to quality care. The Health Minister also revealed that the process to procure brand new dialysis machines is also underway.

The Dialysis Unit at PMH is designed to accommodate one hundred and twenty-five (125) patients. Currently, the Unit caters to nearly two hundred persons who need renal therapy.

Dr. Sands also forecasted further improvements to the Unit including an eventual relocation to a new site.
