A new haemodialysis unit in New South Wales
B. Braun Australia opened a new facility in Gregory Hills to provide a high quality service to locals with chronic kidney failure.
The New Unit
By opening the new unit, we are bringing over 40 years experiences in dialysis to the Macarthur region which is located 60 km in the south-west of Sydney.
The new facility will have 16 stations with capacity for up to 64 patients to receive haemodialysis treatments per week over two shifts.
The Customer-Centric Care
As a one of the world’s leaders in haemodialysis providers, our focus is always on our patients. That’s why people who are in our care can be assured they are in good hands of our experienced nursing staff and nephrologists. On the top of that, you can expect pharmacy service on-site, regular Dr.’s rounds, vascular access reviews and regular pathology collection.
The facility has been equipped with large TV screens and Wi-Fi to make time in our centre more comfortable. Refreshments and onsite free allocated parking are additions to compassionate, friendly and caring staff.
The Wall By Indigenous Artist Zachary Bennett-Brook
Depending on the medical diagnosis, patients usually have to spend up to six hours per day connected to dialysis machines. This is a long time, and for many, it’s not just for treatment but for socialising and learning.
The new ‘meeting place’ was an idea behind the contemporary Indigenous art mural in the facility painted by Torres Strait Islander artist, Zachary Bennett-Brook. His work features a number of circular designs that symbolise community and groupings of people coming together. Having these overlapping within the artwork highlights the importance of working together in society and supporting one another.
The new haemodialysis unit in Gregory Hills will provide a renal care to patients who require life-saving dialysis. The unit has been equipped in new Dialog® iQ. The new system is designed with two inputs to give improved information on the patient’s hemodynamic condition. Dialog iQ’s system intelligence is able to extrapolate data from multiple information sources and take the appropriate action based on the patient’s individual needs.
