FEBRUARY 9, 2023: Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton toured the Spanish Town Hospital’s renal unit on Wednesday.
The Katie Hoo Haemodialysis Unit at the Spanish Town Hospital was outfitted four months ago with 10 refurbished haemodialysis machines, which were donated by Renal Dynamics, a medical supply store in Florida in the United States.
While noting that the refurbished machines is a positive development, Dr Tufton stated that it will still be difficult to satisfy the demand as “renal failure is a big part of our lifestyle in Jamaica”.
