Luis Hora Hospital in Bauko, Mt. Province to launch its first Kidney Dialysis Center


With the growing number of patients needing kidney dialysis in the Cordillera region, the Luis Hora Memorial Regional Hospital formerly Mt. Province General Hospital will soon launch its first kidney dialysis center. 

The kidney dialysis building which was constructed as part of the Php45.802 million fixed assets in the 2016 budget of the hospital will house 10 units of hemodialysis machines. 

The dialysis facility is located on the second floor of the newly constructed building on the right side of the hospital. The new building also houses the outpatient department. 



The new machines will cater the needs of patients with chronic and acute kidney diseases in the locality and nearby CAR provinces including Ilocos Sur province. 

Having this kidney dialysis facility in the province would allow kidney patients to undergo dialysis in the hospital thus not needing to go to Baguio City or in the lowlands to seek for treatments. 

During the groundbreaking ceremony last year, Congressman Maximo Dalog spoke on the importance of the dialysis center.


"Our patients in the province will not have to go to Baguio City and the lowlands to seek treatments but will do so here at the Luis Hora Memorial Regional Hospital near the confines and comforts of their homes and families without incurring much traveling and incidental expenses", Dalog said. 

WowCordillera.com visited the facility last month and had a chance to glimpse on the newly hemodialysis machines inside the building that are ready to be used. 


However, representative of the hospital said the dialysis will open as soon as the nurses and personnel tasked to operate the machines have successfully completed their training.  

The said facility will be added to the more that ten dialysis center in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR)

Luis Hora Memorial Regional Hospital (LHMRH) is located at Abatan, Bauko Mt. Province, Tagudin - Cervantes Road.
