In the presence of the Kingdom’s Minister of Health, H.E. Dr. Tawfiq bin Fawzan Al-Rabiah, we inaugurated our first Integrated Renal Care Centre (IRCC) in Riyadh in April. The new facility will bring new levels of renal care excellence integrating our d.ACADEMY training centre, dialysis centre, and a vascular access procedure room to optimise care delivery.
“Guided by our strong purpose to provide world-class renal care in Saudi Arabia, today we are excited to launch the first Diaverum Saudi Arabia IRCC stressing our continuous commitment to the market and our patients. We will continue to make large, long-term investments in critical medical infrastructure, thus making the Kingdom our biggest market globally by 2018”, says Ziyad Kabli, Managing Director Diaverum Middle East.
Well trained and educated staff is key for successful treatment of chronic kidney disease. This is the reason why Diaverum has always offered its doctors and nurses an innovative and internationally recognised training, latest with the establishment of d.ACADEMY. The online platform features more than 50 courses for physicians, nurses and patients worldwide. In the new IRC Centre in Riyadh we additionally invite nurses and doctors to join Diaverum Saudi Arabia and get world-class training on site.
Every year, the number of Saudi residents suffering from kidney disease increases by an average of seven percent. According to the Saudi Centre for Organ Transplantation, there are 17,000 patients end stage chronic kidney disease in the Kingdom.
