Benguet General Hospital (BeGH) to open its own dialysis center soon

Cordillera - The Benguet General Hospital (BeGH) located in La Trinidad, Benguet will soon open its own dialysis center to cater the needs of patients needing kidney dialysis treatment. 

Benguet Governor Melchor Diclas said the provincial local government has allotted 5 million pesos for the rehabilitation of the hospital's Annex A Building to serve as a Dialysis Center that is expected to be finished this month (January 2021). 

A total of 10 units of dialysis machine will be provided by the Department of Health (DOH) and the Benguet PLU has already hired personnel to operate the machines, according Governor Diclas. 

Diclas has been expediting the rehabilitation of the facility so the dialysis units will be used and that more patients will be catered for.

The existing dialysis centers in BeGH and at the Provincial Health Office (Benguet Renal Center, Inc. and Benguet Premium Kidney Care Center, Inc) are two "free-standing" dialysis centers renting at the building.

Dr. Meliarazon Dulay, BeGH Acting Chief of Hospital, said once the machines from the DOH are available, the accreditation and license to operate from the DOH will be processed to finally open the BeGH dialysis center.
