HISTORY

The Dialysis Department of Calamba Medical Center has revolutionized treatment and transformed lives of patients throughout the years. The CMC Hemodialysis Unit is a duly accredited facility by the Department of Health (DOH) and Philippine Health Insurance Corp. (PHIC). Founded in 1995, the hemodialysis unit began equipped with BBraun HD Secura, Dialog+ and Baxter 1550 as its first dialysis machines. The increasing number of patients and need for more hemodialysis treatments brought the expansion of the Hemodialysis Unit in 2005. It was relocated to a larger area to accommodate both in-patients and outpatients on a three-shift, twelve-seated facility using the durable Fresenius 4008S HD machines.

At present, a new 15-seated station Hemodialysis unit opened last June 17, 2015 at the 5th floor of the enormous CMC Tower catering hemodialysis out-patients utilizing state of the art facilities including the latest Fresenius 5008S HD machines. Policies and procedures are strictly adhered to by all medical and nursing staff to maintain standards in giving patient care and customer satisfaction. Professionalism and teamwork in the workplace are religiously observed to ensure that hemodialysis becomes a bearable procedure to our clients.
