Continuing with its rapid expansion plans across India, kidney care specialist NephroPlus today announced the opening of their second unit in Bangalore at the VIMS Hospital in Marathahalli. This is the second unit for NephroPlus after it launched the first one at Koshy’s Hospital in Ramamurthy Nagar in March this year. The new centre at VIMS will have 6 beds with a peak capacity of 12 beds.
Following the highest quality standards to prevent cross infection, the unit will be monitored by NephroPlus’ highly effective remote monitoring system.

The opening of the new clinic is the extension of our vision to provide quality kidney care to one and all. We are looking at significantly expanding our presence across Karnataka and will be setting up more units in the coming months to reach out to patients in other parts of the State.”
NephroPlusplans to launch another five clinics with similar capacity in the next six months in Karnataka. NephroPlus will have standalone clinics as well as partner with leading hospitals and medical colleges in the stateto set up its state-of-the-art centres. Following the highest quality standards to prevent cross infections at any cost, NephroPlus is the first in the country to remotely monitor its dialysis units including the machines and RO plants.

India accounts for 20 lakh ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) patients with one lakh new cases annually driven by diabetes and hypertension. ESRD cannot be treated with drugs and dialysis is the only option. There are some improvements in the dialysis process itself that are constantly being tried and adopted. However, the state of kidney care in India currently is in a shambles as more than 1/3rd dialysis patients get infected by life threatening HIV, Hepatitis C and Hepatitis B infections during dialysis.
There is an urgent need for world class kidney care and dialysis centres so that patients, especially from the economically weaker sections of the society, do not get sub-standard treatment that can turn life-threatening. Patients can feel safe at NephroPlus as it has kept its infection rate (during dialysis) at ZERO.
NephroPlus (www.nephroplus.com) is India’s leading Kidney Care Clinics chain providing services like Hemodialysis, Peritoneal dialysis and Kidney transplants. With a strong commitment to quality, it is spearheading a change in the way in which dialysis is done in India. NephroPlus has seven centres in South India and is coming soon to many other places across India. The goal of NephroPlus is to enable patients tolive life normally, encouraging them to do things the way everyone does like work, travel and have fun.
