First stand-alone kidney treatment centre opens in Bahrain

MANAMA, June 28, 2022

Bahrain’s first stand-alone dialysis centre for treating kidney diseases and conditions has been launched with support from the Bahrain Economic Development Board (EDB).
The $1.4 million Al Bayrooni Dialysis centre includes a full-spectrum of high-quality kidney care services focused on the needs of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. It is dedicated to treating chronic kidney disease as well as a vast range of kidney conditions, including hemodialysis, transplantation referrals, and holiday dialysis. 
Al Bayrooni also includes programs to prevent or postpone admission to dialysis.
Dr Sandra Carmody, Administrative Director at Al Bayrooni, said: “Through the launch of the centre, our goal is to improve quality of life by providing the best care. We ensure this through our state-of-the-art technology and outstanding customer service.
“Bahrain’s healthcare sector has exciting growth opportunities and a workforce ripe for development. With our international team of specialists, we look forward to sharing our experience with the Bahraini medical community,” Dr Carmody said.
Munther Almudawi, Executive Director of Investment Development – Education and Healthcare, at EDB, said: “Healthcare is a promising sector and a critical focus area for our government. With the planned $30 billion strategic projects under the Economic Recovery Plan, we aim to elevate the quality of healthcare for Bahraini citizens, amongst other long-term sustainable results. 
“Unique projects like Al Bayrooni drive our healthcare sector forward, moving Bahrain a step closer towards becoming a leading centre for modern medicine. We hope to see their facility grow and serve more patients in Bahrain and the wider GCC,” said Almudawi.
The healthcare market in Bahrain has been growing at an annual average rate of 5.7%, from an estimated $1.1 billion in 2018 to an estimated $1.3 billion in 2021, reflecting the growing investment opportunity within this key sector. Bahrain has a long history in healthcare and today it has more than 800 licensed healthcare facilities. -TradeArabia News Service
